McKay-this is cool

Ah hah! Think I figured out David Hewlett's new movie!

Some hints from Twitter from David Hewlett:

dhewlett: Day one on my latest primate movie ;-) Currently holding the key to a great performance: coffee and the ubiquitous breakfast burrito!

Well, that's enough data. I toodled on over to the British Columbia film commission website to see what was being filmed in Vancouver - http://www.bcfilmcommission.com/about_us/film_list.php - and saw this:

CAESAR: RISE OF THE APES
TCF Vancouver Productions Ltd.

So, I'm guessing he's working on that. It's the only movie mentioned with 'primates' in it, it's probably considered big. Not much on IMDB yet (James Franco and Don Cheadle in cast and they just cast someone for the lead primate).

I hope his character fares better than his character in SPLICE! ;)
