James Dean To Be Revived Through CGI In A War Drama, A Marketing Ploy Or A Genuine Casting?


Hollywood has been notorious for sinking low to make money at the box-office. I can only suggest, please let the dead rest. Reviving musicians and actors through CGI and making money off the emotions of true fans is disrespectful. Are the studio executives so much out of ideas of making something original and iconic that they have to bring back the deceased to make a profit?

Technology has leapt marvellously, and we love that we can enjoy movies like Avengers and Avatar. The reports say that the family of the icon James Dean agrees to the use of his Old footage and photos to bring him back in a movie posthumously. If you are offered an enormous sum of money, what would you do?

I would have understood that there is a genuine need to cast James Dean in the role, but the words of the studio executive were so fishy. I will not name the person, but he said – “It opens up a whole new opportunity for many of our clients who are no longer with us.” These words broke my heart.

James Dean died at the age of 24 in a car accident. He will be playing Rover through CGI in a movie named “Finding Jack.” The film is based upon a novel, and it’s about the Military dogs who were left abandoned after the Vietnam war. The plot is interesting, and wil drive the audience to the theatre but at what moral cost?
