The directors of a new Vietnam film originally wanted Elvis Presley CGI to star as the controversial character instead of James Dean. They suddenly had a change of heart and decided to cast James Dean instead in CGI format. Why the change of heart?
Film directors, Anton Ernst and Tati Golykh initially had Elvis in mind for the CGI role long before finalizing the decision to cast James Dean in CGI for the $40 million dollar project, "Finding Jack."
Elvis died in 1977 at age 42. He was previously cast as a malfunctioning hologram in a scene for 2017’s “Blade Runner 2049.”
James Dean passed away much younger at age 24 when he perished in a horrible car accident in 1955.
