Curious as to how the new Planet of The Apes prequel plans on capturing the apes that started the simian uprising? Check out our exclusive sneak peek on set, and see the brand new ape men.
While out and about in San Francisco, a commenter named Nolan snapped a few pictures of the infamous ape Caesar. Or at least the stunt mo-cap actor who was filming for this character. According to the onlooker the actor was booking it up and down the hill doing his best "ape walk." If you followed any of the past Apes mythology, you know that Caesar is the ape that eventually leads the primate rebellion. So at least we know that in this film he seemingly starts on all fours. Can't wait to see what the special effects team does with this footage.
Here's the official synopsis:
An origin story set in present day San Francisco, where man's own experiments with genetic engineering lead to the development of intelligence in apes and the onset of a war for supremacy.
Rise of the Apes will be in theaters June 24th 2011.
Thanks for the tip and photos, Nolan!
