James Dean To Return For A Posthumous Role
The iconic Hollywood actor James Dean, who died in a car accident 1955, is digitally created for the film Finding Jack.
A long-time has come since the death of James Dean raised in public. He returns to the big screen next year, 2020, for a Vietnam War movie. The recreational work will be by visual effects companies Image engine and VFX House MOI Worldwide.
Anton Ernst and Tati Golykh direct the film together with Donald A. Barton. Mari Sova has written the script. The film is based on Gareth Crocker’s novel with the same name, which follows the story of the abandonment of 10.000 canine units by the end of the Vietnam War.
“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,” said Ernst.
“We feel very honored that his family supports us and will take every precaution to ensure that his legacy as one of the most epic film stars to date is kept firmly intact. The family views this as his fourth movie, a movie he never got to make. We do not intend to let his fans down.”
The role of Rogan is set to be completely of CGI, through photos and old footage, although a different actor vill lends his voice.
“This opens up a whole new opportunity for many of our clients who are no longer with us,” said Mark Roesler, CEO of CMG Worldwide,
The production is planned to start November 17, 2019, with a release in 2020.
