CGI James Dean to star in new movie

Recommended Posts

Eldorado

"Hollywood icon James Dean is due for a cinematic resurrection after it was announced the actor has been “cast” in a Vietnam war drama about military dogs.

"According to the Hollywood Reporter, directors Anton Ernst and Tati Golykh have acquired the rights to use the image of the actor – who died in 1955 – from his family in an adaptation of Gareth Crocker’s novel, Finding Jack. The novel follows a soldier who bonds with a labrador called Jack during the conflict, but is ordered to leave the dog behind, along with thousands of others, when the US military pulls out.

"The film-makers will use pre-existing film and photographs to create a “full body” CGI version of Dean, with another actor providing his voice."

I wondered when this would happen.  Soon big productions will use the likeness of deceased actors and pay people much less to wear a green body suit, saving millions.  I wonder when the new Jayne Mansfield comes out?

I heard that Whitney Houston was set to do some touring again :(   I guess I can see the draw but it's also kind of creepy if it becomes common.

El,
Do you remember this CGI message from beyond the grave?

(The Monkhouse estate gave their blessing)


Clever stuff!

Oh wow, that's amazing.  Gosh she was beautiful - although I thought they made her look a bit too anime-ish in that.  The eyelashes were a tad over the top.  Still amazing! :wub:
