[ti:Dead for 64 Years, James Dean to Star in New Film] [by:www.myyhpf.tw] [00:00.00]更多聽力請訪問51VOA.COM [00:00.04]American actor James Dean has been dead for 64 years. [00:06.12]The star of Rebel Without a Cause died at the age of 25 in September 1955. [00:15.08]Yet, he will star in a new movie about the Vietnam War thanks to digital technology. [00:24.08]The makers of the movie "Finding Jack" announced this month [00:28.97]that they plan to use computer-generated images of James Dean in the film. [00:35.73]The images will come from old film clips and pictures of Dean. [00:42.48]Another actor is to provide the voice. [00:45.84]Other movies have had digitally created performances by dead actors, [00:52.24]but most of them had already played parts in the film, like Peter Cushing. [00:57.90]He first appeared in the very first Star Wars film. [01:02.81]Cushing died in 1994. [01:06.72]Yet images of him were digitally recreated for the 2016 Star Wars film Rogue One. [01:17.36]The idea that one of the movies' most beloved former stars [01:22.08]would be recreated digitally for a new film has been met with criticism. [01:28.36]Captain America actor Chris Evans [01:31.84]called the plans to use Dean's image in the film disrespectful and wrongheaded. [01:39.72]"Maybe we can get a computer to paint us a new Picasso. [01:44.52]Or write a couple new John Lennon tunes," said Evans on Twitter. [01:50.16]The Hollywood Reporter was the first to report the news. [01:56.40]The producers of Finding Jack got the rights to Dean's likeness through CMG Worldwide. [02:05.12]The company represents Dean's family as well as the intellectual [02:10.57]property rights of many other famous people who are dead. [02:15.14]They include astronaut Neil Armstrong, and the actors Bette Davis and Burt Reynolds. [02:23.72]Mark Roesler is the chairman and chief executive of CMG. [02:29.05]He defended the decision to use images of James Dean. [02:34.14]He said the company has represented the actor's family for many years. [02:40.06]Noting that Dean has more than 183,000 followers on Instagram, [02:46.66]Roesler said he is still important today. [02:51.60]"James Dean was known as Hollywood's ‘rebel' and he famously said [02:57.03]‘if a man can bridge the gap between life and death, if he can live after he's dead, [03:03.32]then maybe he was a great man,'" Roesler said. [03:08.00]"What was considered rebellious in the '50s is very different than what is rebellious today, [03:14.34]and we feel confident that he would support this modern day act of rebellion." [03:21.56]Finding Jack is about the U.S. military's decision to leave behind the dogs [03:28.28]that had aided soldiers when the Vietnam War ended. The story is based on the book written by Gareth Crocker. [03:38.52]Anton Ernst and Tati Golykh are the film's directors. [03:43.87]In an email, Ernst said they respect Dean's life and history. [03:49.92]The movie "is one of hope and love," said Ernst. [03:53.72]"There is still a lot of James Dean's fans worldwide... [03:58.65]there would always be critics, and all we can do is tell a great story with humanity." [04:06.60]Ernst added that the Dean family "views this as his fourth movie, a movie he never got to make. [04:14.37]We do not intend to let his fans down." [04:19.12]Dean starred in just three movies before he died in a car crash. [04:24.37]They are Rebel Without a Cause, East of Eden and Giant. [04:31.64]I'm Susan Shand. 更多聽力請訪問51VOA.COM 重庆幸运农场开奖结果查
