Tom Felton Rises With Apes

Tom Felton has been cast in 'Rise of the Apes'.

The 22-year-old actor will star alongside Freida Pinto, Brian Cox and Andy Serkis in the movie - a prequel to 'Planet of the Apes'.

He will play the son of Cox's unnamed character, a monkey sanctuary owner who cares little about the primates under his ownership.

It will be the second big baddie role for British actor Tom, who is best known for his portrayal of Harry Potter's enemy Draco Malfoy in the 'Harry Potter' movie franchise.

Little is known about the script of the film, although it is known Serkis will portray a genetically-modified intelligent ape who leads to a monkey uprising across the globe.

Tom recently completed filming on the final instalment of the wizard franchise 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II' and will next been seen in Todd Lincoln's horror thriller 'The Apparition' alongside Ashley Greene and Sebastian Stan.

Production on Rupert Wyatt-directed 'Rise of the Apes' is due to start soon, with a scheduled release date of June 24, 2011.
