When the Apes Take Over We Can Blame James Franco

James Franco, winning the Judd Apatow award for highness.

If you thought not one, but two prequels to Alien were a wee bit unnecessary, does Hollywood have news for you!

James Franco has signed on to play a scientist who creates a group of hyper intelligent chimps that will later take over the world leading to…are you ready for this…Planet of The Apes!  Gasp!  Wait…the hell?

Yes, a prequel to 1968’s Planet of the Apes may be, by all accounts, the most pointless prequel to come from Hollywood in a very long time.  And the casting of James Franco as a monkey scientist?  Yeah, I don’t know where they come up with these things either.  This is proof that Hollywood relies a bit more on the 14-year-old girl crowd than the still-living-in-my parents-basement male crowd.

I’m sorry, but let me just say this one more time so we’re all on the same page here: Remember those crazy apes in Planet of the Apes?  Dr. James Franco made them.
