James Dean Who Died In 1955 Will Return To The Screen Via CGI For New Movie


It seems like movies are trying new things each and every year. In fact, the big thing right now has been making older actors younger by using the de-aging technique. You may have seen this in recent films like Gemini Man with Will Smith and Captain America: Civil War with Robert Downey Jr. Yet, no movie has completely put in a CGI actor in a full length movie, let alone an actor that had passes away years ago.

That's all about to change because James Dean, the iconic young male star of “Rebel Without a Cause” and “East of Eden” who died in a car crash in 1955, will be brought back to the big screen to posthumously star in a film through CGI technology. Yep, a fully CGI version of James Dean. According to The Verge, Dean will star in the Vietnam War drama “Finding Jack,” and the movie will feature a realistic, lifelike version of a full body of Dean’s likeness digitally constructed with the aid existing footage and photos. However, Dean’s voice will be dubbed by another actor.

Casting is underway, and pre-production starts on Nov. 17, with the goal for a worldwide release on Veterans Day 2020.

Not quite sure how I feel about this but it will be interesting to see. What do you think?
