Sony Pictures and Miramax’s Robert Zemeckis have a new movie in the pipeline called ‘Here’. Leading stars Tom Hanks, Robin Wright, and some of the cast members will be digitally de-aged for the film adaptation of Richard McGuire’s graphic novel.
“I’ve always been attracted to technology that helps me to tell a story,” Zemeckis said in a statement to Variety. “With Here, the film simply wouldn’t work without our actors seamlessly transforming into younger versions of themselves. Metaphysic’s AI tools do exactly that, in ways that were previously impossible! Having tested every flavor of face replacement and de-aging technology available today, Metaphysic are clearly the global leaders in feature-quality AI content and the perfect choice for this incredibly challenging, emotional film.”
The film will be directed by Robert Zemeckis, whom is most famous for the Back To The Future Trilogy, and of course ‘Forest Gump’, which was also lead by Hanks. Zemeckis will also be co-writing with Eric Roth. Joining Hanks and Wright is Paul Bettany and Kelly Reilly.
Set to take place from the past to the distant future, the story will center around a corner of a room and the many people who have inhabited it over the years.
