Courtesy of Bleeding Cool, a photo from the set of Rise of the Apes has surfaced online! This image features Freida Pinto and James Franco as they move across a bridge. With them is Andy Serkis, in a motion capture outfit, which will no doubt be transformed into an ape for the big screen.

By request, these photos have been removed.

Rise of the Apes is an origin story in the truest sense of the term. Set in present day San Francisco, the film is a reality-based cautionary tale, a science fiction/science fact blend, where man's own experiments with genetic engineering lead to the development of intelligence in apes and the onset of a war for supremacy.
