No, Philip Seymour Hoffman will not be CGI in ‘The Hunger Games’

Film Review The Hunger Games Catching Fire

Apart from The Hunger Games: Mockingjay-Part 1 being one of the biggest films to be released in the holiday season, it will be viewers’ last chance to see Philip Seymour Hoffman in action. After the awful and unimagined death of the renowned actor, rumors started to fly that Lionsgate may use digital resources to complete his unfinished scenes. After a respectful break of the cast and crew following the actor’s death, Director Francis Lawrence had to make the acute decision on how to finish the franchise.

Hoffman had minimal scenes left to film and thankfully the decision was made not to resurrect the dead with CGI. Lawrence knew his decision held little contention with Lionsgate, as trying to recreate a viable Hoffman by digital means would have been catastrophic.

“He had two scenes with dialogue that where left and we decided we didn’t want to try any digital trickery with him, so we rewrote his scenes and gave the dialogue to other actors,” explained Lawrence in an interview with The Huffington Post.

Therefore, when Mockingjay is released this Friday, November 21st, audiences will be able to enjoy the last of the legacy that is Philip Seymour Hoffman. Read our review of the new film.
