Freida Pinto and Don Cheadle have reportedly been offered roles in the Planet Of The Apes prequel.

According to Bloody Disgusting, the duo have been tipped to appear in Rupert Wyatt's film, expected for June 2011, although there is no word as to what parts they would play.

If the rumours are true, then they would join James Franco who is set to play the lead - "a young, driven scientist who becomes a crucial figure in the war between humans and apes".

Fox, the studio behind the film, previously released a statement saying: "Rise Of The Apes (tentative title) 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."
