Yesterday, we reported that George Lucas was buying up the rights to dead actors so he could cast them in some future CGI project. But what does Lucas have to say about it?
About what you'd expect.
According to a spokesperson for Lucasfilm: "This is a false rumor."
(Hey, we did say it was the Rumor of the Day.)
Meanwhile, we don't imagine that Mel Smith, the U.K. comedian who was blabbed about the rumor to The Sun in the first place, will be getting work from Lucas anytime soon!
But on the other hand ... dead actors being brought back to life in new movies will surely happen someday. When it does, how are you going to feel about it?
