The Company Bringing Back James Dean From The Dead Will Do The Same With Many, Many Other Dead Celebrities
Even though people have seemingly reacted quite strongly in the “please stop this” category when it comes to creating these hologram/CGI bastardizations of dead celebrities, the company who plans to make money off the enterprise is not giving up. They will make a profit off dead people whose talents cannot be recreated because they are dead. The will find a way to make it appealing to watch a movie while thinking: “Hmm, so that’s a person who’s playing James Dean-who’s playing a character? …So actual James Dean has nothing to do with this? He’s just dead?”
The Hollywood Reporter says you can expect more dead celebrities to be coming back from the grave to entertain, horrify and disappoint us, as actor James Dean–who died 60 years ago at age 24–will be back on your movie screen next year. A Vietnam war movie called Finding Jack is going into pre-production and they’ve cast the deceased James Dean in a major role. I mean… why have new celebrities when we can just digitally reincarnate the old ones?! Not creepy at all!
