Listen: Tech resurrects James Dean for a new movie
"The Hollywood reporter reporter ran an article. That says James Dean will be brought back on film now. James Dean has been dead since one thousand nine hundred fifty five also. The role is considered the secondary lead. So you're you're going to get a lot of. CG James Dean. The film is called a finding Jack by the CEO of CMG worldwide which represents Danes family said to quote. This opens up a whole new opportunity for many of our clients who are no longer with us Ben just because we have this technology. Should we not doing this. Is this right. Is it right Look we'll see if the movie is successful because unfortunately if it is successful you'll see a lot of copycatting adding that's how Hollywood. That's how Hollywood works. That's how a lot of entertainment works a problem that I have here from reading the Hollywood reporter story is that They said they spent a lot of time. Trying to find the right secondary lead for this part and then determined that a CGI. James Dean was their rest option. I'm not buying that. Yeah I mean how bad is your talent pool such that you can't go like hey possible. James Franco's pretty close like he was kind of looks like extraordinaire to the role. Maybe maybe could find an unknown but yes deficit. Sounds like a gimmick but the idea that the the talent agencies like Oh a lot of our guys are happened happened to be dead we can bring him back. It just sounds like a terrible terrible idea so if you want to look at this very cynically to this has the possibility going back to here. James Franco example of avoiding having to pay a very large sums of money to living well known actors and instead putting a completely really unknown person in a CGI out fed. And then slapping a James Dean skin on them and then calling it a day. It is entirely possible that they would save a lot of money doing this. But I'm not really sure what the dollars and sense are here. So you're thinking that there's going to be a mo cap man or mo cap person running around on stage with whoever the actually does wouldn't wouldn't mo cap motion capture bow cap okay. I'm totally with it. So they are hiring an actor to do the voice though of James Dean so the question. This is a terrible idea. I don't I don't love it and We've we've certainly seen other examples of this before but certainly not not for a lead character. Like for instance. Carrie Fisher is a good example where they did a young version of Carrie Fisher for one of the Star Wars Movies but Young Carrie Fisher didn't exist anymore. She was his older Carrie Fisher at that point so it's in that part it's unavoidable and I would have been I'm more okay with that example I duNno. I just really really curious what this is going to do could this. CG James Dean Win an academy award if is it possible. You're hurting my head I okay. Let's let's let's. Let's talk with that aside."
