Philip Seymour Hoffman The Hunger Games Mockingjay

Philip Seymour Hoffman only had a few days left to complete “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2,” however he sadly passed away before he had finished filming his scenes. It has now been revealed that Lionsgate will digitally recreate the late actor for a major scene in the movie including his character Plutarch Heavensbee.

Special effects supervisor Rob Legato told The Hollywood Reporter:

These days the technology of using someone’s likeness is a whole lot easier to do. 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.

Our thoughts are with Philip’s family and friends during this very difficult time.
