First of all, let me reassure the ladies that James Franco doesn’t play one of the apes in this weekend’s blockbuster Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes. So simmer down, he’s not wearing a mask or an ape costume. He’s a doctor. A doctor trying to find a cure for Alzheimer’s. Yes, he looks way too cute and young to be the guy to find a cure for anything other than maybe dandruff, but it’s a movie! He’s also in Detroit filming the new Sam Raimi movie where he plays a Wizard and I thought they were all old and wrinkly like Dumbledore, but what do I know. Maybe you’ve seen a movie crew out and about setting up shots for Spiderman 3: Bitten In Emerald City. They’re calling it a prequel to the Charlton Heston classic. This weekend, though, it’s the prequel to the Peter Parker classic. We find out how the spider bite turned him into an ape… or was that changed him into Ryan Reynolds? Jason Bateman? A little help here.
