Actor Chris Evans has criticized the CGI casting of James Dean, who will be digitally resurrected for a secondary lead role in the Vietnam War film Finding Jack.
The Captain America star shared his reaction to the news on Twitter on Wednesday, as he retweeted the story from The Hollywood Reporter regarding Dean’s posthumous role in the upcoming action-drama and sarcastically remarked, “I’m sure he’d be thrilled.”
“This is awful,” he continued. “Maybe we can get a computer to paint us a new Picasso. Or write a couple new John Lennon tunes. The complete lack of understanding here is shameful.”
