Post Tom Felton talks Caesar: Rise of the Apes, confirms role in Out of the Rough

In a new interview, Tom Felton spoke about his upcoming film, Rise of the Apes, which he finished filming earlier this week in Vancouver, Canada, and working with its director, Rupert Wyatt. The Harry Potter star also confirmed that he will indeed star in the golf movie Out of the Rough, which will be shot in Louisiana this October and November.

Quote:
You've obviously moved on having scored Caesar: Rise of the Apes. How did you get cast in that?
TOM FELTON:
It came out of nowhere, bizarrely. I actually went on my first proper holiday I've had for a while, and on the fourth day I got a call saying, “Would you fancy coming to Vancouver and we'll have a look at you, and think about taking on this role?” I was excited about it; I'm a huge fanof the Planet of the Apes franchise, so I was excited.

I read the script and honestly it was one of the best things I've ever read, if not the best – certainly over the last few years – so I was excited to come over. And when I got to Vancouver I met with [director] Rupert Wyatt who's brilliantly directing the project at the moment, and I've been here for three weeks now.
Quote:
How familiar are you with the old movies?
TOM FELTON:
I've actually been re-introduced since joining this other franchise, if you will. I've had to do some research and go back a bit, but my dad was the most excited, because he was a big franchise fan back when he was a youngster. He was very excited. He keeps dropping quotes and names of old apes and things.
Quote:
I think this approach – using the fourth film as a launching point rather than doing a direct remake of the original – is brilliant. It's really it's own thing in a lot of ways.
TOM FELTON:
I couldn't agree more. Had I not had the knowledge that it was what it was, I almost wouldn't have put two and two together – it's such a great story set in completely different backdrops and atmospheres, so I'm sort of intrigued about how the Planet of the Apes fans take this, and kind of enjoy it, because everyone here is absolutely reveling in the story. it seems to me that it's going to appeal to absolutely everyone.

Whether you're a fan of the franchise previously or not – you don't need a heavy understanding of what happened in Tim Burton's or in the original; it's sort of out on its own, in its own way. I mean, one of the golden rules is don't touch a classic, and it's fair to say that some of the originals are definitely classics and there's less pressure on the whole franchise if you're not trying to remake something, or please a certain genre of fans. It's something completely new.
Quote:
And how about working with Rupert?
TOM FELTON:
It's been an absolutely joy. I really thought, after the last four years of Potter, working with David Yates, that I wouldn't find anyone who's quite as incredible as him, but now on my first job I've found one. Rupert is unbelievably understanding and approachable, and a completely nice guy, butat the same he's an absolutely genius as well – he seems to notice tiny, tiny details that no one else does, and he can sort of control a set of ten plus actors single handedly, so it's been nothing but a joy, and he's come up with all these extra bits, if you will that I wouldn't have thought of, that no one would have thought of, so it's been an absolute joy.
Quote:
Are you a nice guy or a bad guy in the movie?
TOM FELTON:
(laughs) I don't want to say too much, but needless to say he's not the nicest guy in the world and I have a lot of fun playing him. With Brian Cox involved [playing his father], it doesn't set a good scene; it's kind of bad from there on in.

Have you worked with Brian yet?
TOM FELTON:
Yes we have, we've had a few opportunities to work together and he's been great as well. I don't know why you would expect these big names to be very different around you, but not at all, he's exceptionally relaxed, and very friendly – we got to talking about old times, and he's relayed a lot of exciting stories to me.

He's kind of a scary guy to be fair. It's actually bizarre, there's lots of brilliantly friendly actors on set, but when they're in front of the camera they're completely different people.
Quote:
What else are you working on?
TOM FELTON:
I always try to keep focused on one project at the time – but this is coming to a close for me – I'm finishing up on Friday and I've got a lot of Potter promotion and premieres which I'm very excited about as I've not seen any of the footage we shot there.

Then I’m supposed to be going to Louisiana to shoot an independent film called Out Of The Rough. We're going to be shooting that through October and November, so I'm very excited about that as well. It's an independent project about a coach who gets the opportunity to put together a golf team, for which he gets four international boys, and I play the British boy. It is a very different role for me, and it definitely stands out against what I've done previously. I’m excited to get on board.
The full interview can be read here. Caesar: Rise of the Apes will be out next June.
