Philip Seymour Hoffman may be digitally replicated for unfinished ‘Hunger Games’ scenes
Question of the Day
Lionsgate may have found a way to handle the ‘The Hunger Games’ scenes that remain uncompleted due to actor Philip Seymour Hoffman’s death: Digitize him.
A source with ties to the project told the Hollywood Reporter that “they seem to have plans that don’t seem very complicated,” to handle the actor’s unfinished work. “You can do digital things, you can have conversations where you’re not focusing on him but the people he’s talking to.”
“These days the technology of using someone’s likeness is a whole lot easier to do,” Rob Legato, a veteran effects supervisor unconnected with the film, told the Reporter. “I won’t say you could generate a Philip Seymour Hoffman with all the acting ability, but you could certainly replicate him for a shot or two.”
“Mockingjay — Part 1” will be released in Nov. 21 in the U.S., and the final installment of the “Hunger Games” series, “Mockingay — Part 2,” is slated for a U.S. release of Nov. 20, 2015. Hoffman had completed all of his filming for Part 1 prior to his death from a heroin overdose.
