Does Lucas know they can do this? He would never have to use living actors again!
Ridley Scott will keep the late Oliver Reed's unfinished performance in his upcoming movie Gladiator.
The actor's role has been rewritten, with final scenes to be reshot with another actor.
Reed's face will then be placed over the other actor's.
They will use CGI, which is good. Other studios just skin the actual face off the dead actor and make the replacement wear it. That's just time consuming.
