James Dean 'cast' in new movie, 64 years after death

"The total deficiency of understanding listed here is shameful", tweeted our Captain America, with our pricey Frodo Baggins reducing to the chase with a succinct "NOPE".

The production company Magic City Films announced Wednesday that it would be digitally re-creating James Dean, the legendary actor who died in a 1955 vehicle crash at age 24, for the upcoming film "Finding Jack".

Daughter of late Robbie Williams, Zelda Williams is one of the notable stars who has shown her huge sadness over this news. To be fair though, that was the only manipulation of his body and is nowhere near comparable to actually resurrecting someone using CGI. A different actor will lend his voice to what will be a secondary role for Dean's character.

James Dean may be the latest big name to have been brought back from the other side to play a cinematic role but isn't the first.

Very similar know-how has been used a short while ago with "Star Wars" actors Carrie Fisher and Peter Cushing showing posthumously in 2016's "Rogue 1", while the deceased actors appeared in the film in roles they experienced now played, Time journal pointed out.

Yeah, that is not James Dean.

Rights to Dean's likeness were acquired by the filmmakers and the production company Magic City Films through CMG Worldwide. "Or write a couple new John Lennon tunes", Evans wrote on Twitter.

On the other hand, casting Dean in a model new job raises new thoughts about how this engineering could be made use of with other actors in the future.

James Dean had starred in only 3 movies - Rebel Without a Cause, East of Eden and Giant before he lost his life in a auto crash in 1995 at the age of 24.

Discovering Jack is an action movie about 10,000 defense power dogs that had been abandoned at the tip of the Vietnam Battle. Dean's family views "Finding Jack" as the the fourth movie the actor never got to make.

Despite co-director Anton Ernst's promise that he and directing partner Tati Golykh "will take every precaution to ensure that his legacy as one of the most epic film stars to date is kept firmly intact", actors including Chris Evans and Elijah Wood criticised the move on social media. The focus is going to be on the abandonment of nearly 10,000 military dogs right at the end of the Vietnam war by the soldiers.

But many people, including celebrities, weren't happy about the casting, and expressed their frustration on Twitter. Ernst assures the fans that they will not be let down.

Pre-production onFinding Jackis set to begin November 17, with a goal for a worldwide release on November 11, 2020, Veterans' Day.

Mark Roesler, chairman and chief executive of CMG, defended the usage of Dean and said the company has represented his family for decades.
