The Spider-Man hunk is the star of the latest installment in the sci-fi series, Rise of the Apes, which will be a prequel to the franchise's previous monkey movies.

Pinto has now signed on to play primatologist Caroline, with funnyman John Lithgow drafted in to play Franco's onscreen father, according to Variety.

The new film is the latest re-imagining of the original 1968 sci-fi classic; Mark Wahlberg was the lead in Tim Burton's 2001 remake.
