Freida Pinto: From 'Slumdog Millionaire' to 'Apes'

We haven’t seen much of Freida Pinto since ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ but that’s all gonna change as she is rumored to star in Rise of the Apes alongside James Franco.

Pinto will take on the role of Caroline, a primatologist and John Lithgow who is also in talks for the film will play James Franco’s father.

Apes will be set in present day San Francisco, where man's own experiments with genetic engineering lead to the development of intelligence in apes and the onset of a war for supremacy.

Apes is not the only project that Pinto is working on. She is currently shooting Immortals which is due in theatres in 2011. She is also rumored to star in American Empire, which is about a beautiful young woman and her grunge-looking yet ultra-efficient hit man boyfriend race against time to forestall having to kill two friends falsely accused of "delusions of grandeur" and daring to steal from a new world crime boss.
