In a surprising piece of news, a movie starring James Dean–who died 65 years ago–was announced earlier this week. The Vietnam War-era movie, Finding Jack, is to feature Dean in a leading role, with his performance supplied through digital recreation. The movie generated a lot of debate and discussion after its announcement, with leading actors and other people from Hollywood speaking out to slam the idea of bringing Dean back from the dead in this way.
The directors of the movie, Anton Ernst and Tati Golykh, have now responded to the controversy. Ernst told The Hollywood Reporter that he was “saddened” and “confused” by the backlash, adding that he and Golykh want to make a movie that is respectful to Dean’s life.
