George Lucas to Resurrect Dead Movie Stars?

According to his director friend Mel Smith, George Lucas has a plan for upcoming movies more insidious than a whole Gungan cast. Smith says Lucas is buying the rights to old movies in order to put dead actors in his films. He says, “George has been buying up the film rights to dead actors in the hope of using computer trickery to put them all together, so you’d have Orson Welles and Barbara Stanwyck alongside today’s stars.” Even if Smith is lying, it makes you wonder who long it will be until Hollywood starts to recycle actors as well as scripts.
