A tease. Just signed on for a film that shoots this summer in Vancouver. A hint: think simian. 7:28 PM Jun 22nd via web

H'wood Reporter blew the guessing game: RISE OF THE APES, an extremely smart prequel to PLANET etc.. James Franco's dad, how cool is that? 10:57 PM Jun 23rd via web

Heading to Vancouver tomorrow for pre-production -- these things happen so fast. And over by the end of July! 10:56 PM Jun 26th via web

After a day of pre-production in Vancouver my head swims. Everything suggests "Apes" will be completely amazing, and Franco's a peach. 4:17 PM Jun 29th via web

Lots of welcome to Vancouver tweets. I return tmw, shoot Monday and stay til the end of July. Love that city, been there and done it. 10:33 PM Jul 3rd via web

Day 2 on APES, I adore this director Rupert Wyatt. So happy with the work in Vancouver (although I called Freida Pinto "Leila" -- dumb!!) 8:15 PM Jul 6th via web

2 days acting with #dhewlett in Vancouver and we're both hoarse (but we're not apes).

On APES until 1AM. A terrific scene with James F. But 1 AM? Walter Matthau said "They pay me to wait around. I act for free." 4:29 PM Jul 10th via web

Another father-son scene today. A beautiful re-write arrived yesterday like a Christmas present. BTW, JF and I are distinctly not apes. 7:19 PM Jul 10th via web

Great news, that Brian Cox will be in the film, he of the big, meaty face. Usually there's only room in a movie for one of us. about 2 hours ago via web
