Star Wars creator George Lucas has been busy of late, pulling together the makings of his grandest special effect to date: resurrecting the dead.
But it’s not exactly what you think. Or, maybe it is. You didn’t honestly believe Lucas was drawing a big pantagram on the floor and sacrificing lesser farm animals, did you? Either way, it’s considerably less metal than that.
I’ll let Lucas’ friend, director Mel Smith, fill you in.
George has been buying up the film rights to dead actors in the hope of using computer trickery to put them all together, so you’d have Orson Welles and Barbara Stanwyck alongside today’s stars.
That’s right – Lucas is buying up a stable of DEAD MOVIE STARS, presumably to throw them all into some sort of posthumous Frankensteinian superfilm. There’s bad taste, and then there’s bad taste.
I mean, nothing about this isn’t cool, but it’s in bad taste nonetheless.
