Actor James Dean died in 1955. But, the most remembered as the "Rebel Without a Cause" will star in a new movie. According to The Hollywood Reporter, a computer-generated version of Dean will appear in the Vietnam War-era movie "Finding Jack." According to Time, the news "was met with widespread criticism after the news was first reported by The Hollywood Reporter." According to Hollywood Reporter, the movie will be produced by Magic City Films, which received the rights to use Dean's image from his family. Imagine Engine and MOI Worldwide will re-create "a realistic version of James Dean." According to Time, the images of Dean for "Finding Jack" will be assembled with old footage and photos. The voice will be provided by another actor.
The movie is adapted from the Gareth Crocker novel of the same name that "is based on the existence and abandonment of more than 10,000 military dogs at the end of the Vietnam War. Dean will play a character called Rogan, considered a secondary lead role." The movie will start preproduction on Nov. 17 and is expected to be released on Veterans Day 2020. Dean was an actor who also starred in "East of Eden" in 1955 and "Giant" in 1956. "Rebel Without a Cause" came out in 1955. Dean enjoyed racing cars. He won a first and a second place in a race in March 1955. His last race was in May 1955 but he failed to finish because his car blew a piston. While making the movie "Giant" the producers prohibited from racing. Dean was going to participate in a race in Salinas, Calif., in early October 1955. On the way to the race he was involved in a crash when a car turned in front of his Porsche. Dean was pronounced dead on arrival at a hospital.
