We wereall devasted when we found out that Phillip Seymour Hoffman passed away - he was amazing actor and we loved him in so many films including "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" - Phillip's character Plutarch Heavensbee in the series! And now the studios have decided that they don’t want to recast the role, they’re actually going to use CGI technology to edit the film rather than rewriting the script. Phillip finished all the filming for Mockingjay part 1 but had seven days left of filming for part 2.
"These days the technology of using someone's likeness is a whole lot easier to do," veteran special effects supervisor Rob Legato speculated Monday, Feb. 3 to The Hollywood Reporter. "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."
