Philip Seymour Hoffman Being Digitally Recreated for The Hunger Games - Can it Work?The film world is still reeling from the tragic passing of actor Philip Seymour Hoffman, and news has come that Lionsgate is looking to digitally recreate him for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2, in which Hoffman had one remaining key scene left to be shot.

Can this work? Has technology already advanced that far? A DC reader sent in the test rendering you see below. Mind you, it’s not movie quality just yet, but apparently it can be done. Hopefully the studio and the artists will do the man proud.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 will be in theatres on November 21st, 2014, with Part 2 following on November 20th, 2015.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Book Synopsis
Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has survived the Hunger Games twice. But now that she’s made it out of the bloody arena alive, she’s still not safe. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge. Who do they think should pay for the unrest? Katniss. And what’s worse, President Snow has made it clear that no one else is safe either. Not Katniss’ family, not her friends, not the people of District 12.

    It worked well enough for Jeff Bridges in ‘Tron: Legacy’.

    Honestly I’m okay with it as long as they pour a hell of a lot of time and effort and put their best foot forward. I think if watching the film most folks will understand the filmmakers are trying to honor him in the best way possible vs scrapping his footage and recasting/reshooting.
