Twentieth Century Fox has released the first official promo pic of James Franco in their long awaited prequel/sequel Rise of the Apes. The actor seems to be everywhere these days and he’s showing no signs of stopping. His latest gig will be this Sunday when he hosts the Academy Awards, followed by the release of several high profile films, including this one, and do we even need to talk about the movies he has in development? Franco is everywhere. Check out the full photo below…

Set in present day San Francisco, Rise of the Apes 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.

Rise of the Apes is directed by Rupert Wyatt and also stars John Lithgow, Freida Pinto, Andy Serkis, Brian Cox, Tom Felton and David Oyelowo. Any movie that brings John Lithgow back to the big screen is alright with us.

Rise of the Apes is scheduled to hit theaters on November 23rd.
