Pictures of James Franco and Freida Pinto Shooting Rise of the Apes

James Franco and Freida Pinto Break From Their Busy Schedules to Battle Some Apes

James Franco and Freida Pinto were hand in hand yesterday to work on Rise of the Apes in Vancouver. He arrived in Canada a few weeks ago to settle in before shooting started, but James has been characteristically busy. His Eat, Pray, Love comes out soon, as does his beatnik-era project Howl — it turns out that James has lots in common with his character, Allen Ginsberg. Once James wraps up his movie with Freida, he'll be heading to New Haven to start his PhD studies. He thrives on all the activity, recently telling New York magazine, "I'm doing it because I love it. Why not do as many things I love as I can? As long as the work is good." Freida, meanwhile, will be busy on the promotional trail herself with Miral and You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger hitting theaters later this year.
