Hunger Games to Be Completed with CGI Philip Seymour Hoffman

Had some scenes left to film before he died


The filmmakers behind the "Hunger Games" movies will digitally recreate late actor Philip Seymour Hoffman in a major yet-to-be-shot scene, sources from the flick said.

Editors will use computer graphics and camera tricks — instead of rewriting the script — to film at least one heartfelt scene featuring Hoffman's character, the gamesmaker Plutarch Heavensbee.

"You can do digital things, you can have conversations where you're not focusing on him but the people he's talking to," an insider from the film company Lionsgate told Hollywood Reporter.
