James Franco will star in Rise of the Apes for 20th Century Fox and director Rupert Wyatt. The project is set to begin shooting on July 5.

The new Apes is reportedly set in contemporary San Francisco, and Franco will play a scientist.

Fox tried to dig up the Apes property nearly 10 years ago with director Tim Burton and star Mark Wahlberg. The 2001 release was able to gross $180 million domestically, which translates to $253.2 million when adjusting for inflation. Yet a sequel never happened. Perhaps Franco and Wyatt will have better luck building a new series of films.

Franco will next be seen in 127 Hours for Oscar-winning director Danny Boyle.

Directors Sam Dunn and Scot McFadyen (Metal: A Headbanger's Journey, Iron Maiden: Flight 666) embark on a comprehensive exploration of this extraordinary power trio, from their early days in Toronto, through each of their landmark albums, to the present day. Featuring never-before-seen archival footage and interviews with notables such as Jack Black, Billy Corgan, Trent Reznor, Taylor Hawkins (Foo Fighters), Kirk Hammett (Metallica) and Gene Simmons, this film explores the forty-year career and phenomenon behind what could be the world's biggest cult band.

The film won the Audience Choice Award at the 2010 Tribeca Film Festival and has also received great press in Variety, Billboard, and Entertainment Weekly.

Rush: Beyond The Lighted Stage is theatrically distributed and marketed in the United States by D&E Entertainment and will premiere for a special run in over 100 digital cinemas starting June 10. Participating theatres include: Mann, Marcus, UltraStar, Clearview, Wehrenberg, Krikorian, Hollywood Theaters, Bow Tie, Emagine, Trademark, Rave, Studio Movie Grill, Kerasotes, Cleveland Cinemas, Patriot Cinemas, Belcourt, Megaplex, Malco, Cobb, Big Picture, Camera Cinemas, Celebration Cinemas, Allen Theatres, Santikos, Emagine, Harkins, Alamo Drafthouse, The Regent Theatre, and Showplace East Cinemas.

D&E has previously worked with Banger Films' Scot McFadyen and Sam Dunn in theatrically distributing and marketing their platinum DVD Iron Maiden: Flight 666.

Scot McFadyen: "We learned with our film Flight 666 that a digital theatrical release was a great way to get our film out on the big screen without the daunting expense of a sustained theatrical release. It was also a way to assure that the theatres would be filled with fans experiencing the film with great picture and sound. After all, watching a music film in a packed theatre is always the best way to experience it!"

"D&E Entertainment is very pleased to be working with Scot and Sam again as well as SRO-Anthem and Rounder in giving the critically-acclaimed Rush: Beyond The Lighted Stage the nationwide theatrical release it deserves. The film is an insightful and heartfelt look at Rush, a story that will appeal to fans of all genres of music and film.
