The Spider-Man/Milk/Pineapple Express actor has been chosen as the lead actor for the summer 2011 Planet Of The Apes movie.
He will play a scientist that plays an important role in the humans vs ape war.
Here are the details:
RISE OF THE APES (tentative title) is an origin story in the truest sense of the term. Set in present day San Francisco, the film is a reality-based cautionary tale, a science fiction/science fact blend, where man’s own experiments with genetic engineering lead to the development of intelligence in apes and the onset of a war for supremacy.
