» 'The Hunger Games' will finish Philip Seymour Hoffman's scenes with CGI | PolicyMic
But Lionsgate, the production company behind the films, says that Hoffman’s death will have “no impact” on the final film and that the two movies will be released on time. Instead, any scenes where Hoffman is needed will be recreated using CGI effects, though not necessarily any ones where he should have been viewed facing the camera.
According to Hollywood effects supervisor Rob Legato, “These days the technology of using someone’s likeness is a whole lot easier to do. 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.”
Legato’s comments on Hoffman’s acting ability comes off just as a formality. I can almost hear his brain going, “One day they’ll see. They’ll all see! *maniacal laughter*”.
