Lionsgate reportedly plans to digitally-recreate the late Philip Seymour Hoffman for one major remaining scene in Part 2 of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay.
The studio will use CGI technology to edit the film rather than rewriting the script, or hiring a new actor to take Hoffman's place, Page Six reported Thursday, Feb. 6. The beloved actor was set to reprise his role as Heavensbee in Parts 1 and 2 of Mockingjay. While Hoffman had already completed most of his scenes for Part 1, he still had seven days left to shoot on Part 2.
