Interesting news last week for movie fans. Star Wars mastermind George Lucas is taking CGI to the next level. And he's digging deep to bring the latest cinematic development to the screen. I don't mean his wallet. After all, what's money to George Lucas? No he's digging deep into the graves of dead stars to resurrect them on screen.
This is a fascinating, if not ghoulish, development. Ha, I wonder if this is the only way for Mel Gibson to resurrect his film career? He's sure having trouble doing it while he's alive.
Will Lucas call his film Night of The Living Dead? Oh, right, that's been done before.
Maybe he could raise Herve Villechaize, Gary Coleman and Billy Barty from the grave for a film. I dunno. It'd probably be a short. How about a remake of Little Men?
If it's a Star Wars sequel he's planning, Chris Farley might make for an entertaining Jabba the Hut.
And Liberace might take a turn as Gay Radar, a distant cousin of Darth Vader, "Luke, I'm not your father."
How about digging up Joan Crawford and Bette Davis. Maybe we'll find out whatever happened to baby Jane?
There's a big trend these days towards remakes and reimaginings of films in Hollywood. So here are some possibilities with back from the dead actors in leading roles.
Didn't Die So Hard After All
Full Metal Casket
No Need To Save Private Ryan
A Few Good Dead Men
It's A Wonderful Afterlife
Dead and Deader
Slow and Not So Furious
Conan The Zombie
The Ghoul With The Dragon Tattoo
Not Gone in 60 Seconds (Not Gone Ever)
Face/Off, Hands/Off, Ears/Off

God I hope George Lucas rethinks this. Lord help us if it's the next big thing!
