I don't think much would change with the greedy fucks in charge. They'll look at "Oh look we saved 250 million this year by not hiring actual actors, we still don't need to take any actual risks so lets keep the China-pandering and remakes going!"
Remakes?

Oh dear boy, why make a remake of a classic film when you can simply make a sequel, a prequel, a loosely connected sister film, and thus turn any old classic into its own eternal franchise.

Just Imagine....

A Godfather cinematic universe with the resurrected Marlon Brando meekly obeying every director command given to the intern wearing his skin, even as he is ordered to drop trow and take a back-of-the-busload of nigger dicks in the prison shower sequence to explain his negative views on black people.....

The sequel to Gone with the Wind where Vivian Leigh 2.0 learns to check her white privilege and willingly becomes the cuntlicking mistress of Neo-Hattie McDaniel to atone for her race's sins....

The Citizen Kane prequel where a simulation of a 10 year old Orson Wells earns his first dollars a drag kid burlesque dancer....

That said all the Hollywood assholes suddenly being out of a job or working for millions of dollars less would be hilarious. They'd still be assholes though, just look at the voice acting industry and people like DC Dickless.
Yeah, this will be the greatest entertainment reward for me should this actually come to pass. Watching the waves of outrage and tears drown hollywood will be most cathartic

I wonder what the Film Actors Guild or whatever the hell its called will think about this.

Fame has always been a double edged sword but this is the kind of shit that should have people praying to live in total obscurity lest your virtual corpse be paraded around against your will for centuries after your death.

We searched high and low for the perfect character to portray the role of Rogan, which has some extreme complex character arcs, and after months of research, we decided on James Dean

Nah, they should recreate John Holmes next. But would a digital Holmes infect human actors with digital viruses?

While we're at it. Let's also do this to Georges Reeves as well.
Kryptonians were pretty progressive back then with a troon named Rosanne as leader of the council.

Your sexual fantasies are quite refined.

Oddly enough, this was actually a plot line in a season of Bojack Horseman. He was the lead in a movie, but the producers knew about his reputation for being an unreliable substance abusing asshole, so they scanned his likeness with these crazy detailed CGI plot devices. When he inevitably caused not only a ton of drama, but fled the fucking set and never came back, they were able to finish the movie with the CGI double they had already made, didn't tell anybody, and fake Bojack wound up getting an Oscar nod.

As crazy and disgusting as it sounds, I think this is the future of Hollywood. Soon they will start building a huge database of 3D scans of every big actor and they will only need a voice talent for the facial capture and voice impression of the iconic actor. It might cost a lot at first but I think it might save them a lot of money in the long term. No need to waste millions on an assurance, no contract that forces an actor to stay fit for several months, it won't matter anymore if your movie franchises takes several years to make because the actor won't age a day, if an actor dies from suicide or in an accident no one will give a shit because they already have his 3D model in the database, etc.
Tron: Legacy had a younger Jeff Bridges, sure it looked bad because the technology wasn't ready yet. Star Wars: Rogue One showed that it's possible to bring back the dead (Peter Cushing). Years ago, an ad agency used a CGI version of Audrey Hepburn for a commercial.


The article explicitly mentions Christopher Reeve. Maybe we get another Superman reboot.
How long until JJ uses that idea for his Superman movie? It would be the ultimate memberberry/nostalgia bait.

This shit is being floated out to audiences to test how they respond to digitally resurrected actors as the new movie gimmick, likely at the behest of various hollywood producer types wanting to gauge whether now is the time to start replacing overpaid actors with interns covered in sensors.
I hope Harrison Ford goes on record before he dies saying that he is totally against Disney doing this for whatever they plan to do with Indiana Jones for the next several decades. That's unless he's already agreed to let Disney do exactly just that in exchange for large bags of weed, I mean, "money".

Let's be real this is all marketing, this is a no name movie from a no name team. I just want to know how bad the cgi will be because this will be a low budget movie and even the blockbusters have issues with this shit, could end up being funny as fuck.

Yeah, fuck that, some random people being distantly biologically related to someone else shouldn't give them special rights.

I found him overrated. He wasn't pretty. He sucked dick to get a career. Also he had a threesome with Eartha Kitt and Paul Newman (arguably the only good thing about him imo)

There's so many underrated icons that don't get the acclaim that him, Elvis, Marilyn, etc get.

This reminds me of an even more creepy (and equally pointless) attempt at a digital actor before that:

Hell, at this point just invent actors out of whole-cloth. Why the fuck not? They couldn't die, get involved in scandals or get burned out.
Wouldn't be the first time.

Remember all the plans Square had with the Aki Ross character from the first Final Fantasy movie? IIRC they used her model one more time for that Matrix CGI cartoon before the studio finally died, just with a new haircut.
