CGI resurrects James Dean in new Vietnam-era movie

James Dean will be resurrected with the help of advanced CGI techniques.

The iconic movie star will make an appearance in the upcoming Vietnam era action-drama “Finding Jack” that’s supposed to be out next year. The film is based on a 2011 novel and explores the abandonment of military dogs at the end of the Vietnam war.

The crew behind the movie secured the rights to Dean’s likeness from his family.

Dean died in a car crash at the age of 24 in 1955. Dean was born in Marion and is buried in Fairmount.
