James Franco Has A Cameo In 'Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes'

The Playlist:
There was a time when it was hard to imagine being excited for a “Planet of the Apes” movie. When “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” came out three years ago to rave reviews and became a box office success, surely nobody could have seen it coming. Now, “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” is just a few months away, and it’s pretty safe to say that it’s the most anticipated film in the franchise. Still, while buzz surrounding the film is definitely strong, not everyone is particularly thrilled about what will appear on screen.

James Franco may be involved in a plethora of projects on a yearly basis, almost annoyingly so, but if you happen to see him appear in the upcoming 'Apes' film, you will be just as surprised as he is.

I really enjoyed what they did with the first one and can't wait to see what the did with the sequel. I remember all the old ones but with all the new technology these movies really are so much better on screen, however, that isn't any good if the story doesn't stand up to everything else.

Wait hang on....they killed him off.

Really? I mean the first thing I thought Caesar would of done is help protect him since he was a father figure to him.

Wow...I can't believe they actually killed his character off. James Franco should of been in this and it should of focused on his character in the changed world. I thought at the end of this film, if he was in, he would of been killed off which would of lead Caesar to lead the resistance group for humans and to help them.

Just seems a bit of a bummer that we won't get to see his and Caesar's relationship develop more in more movies and how the strain of the changed world and friction between humans Apes would effect it.
