Hoffman’s ‘Hunger Games’ role to be completed using CGI

London, February 5: Philip Seymour Hoffman’s role of gamemaker ‘Plutarch Heavensbee’ in upcoming ‘Hunger Games – Mockingjay Part 2′ will be finished using digital trickery, it has been revealed.

The 46-year-old actor, who recently died of a suspected drug overdose, still needed to complete one key scene for the fantasy film, Metro.co.uk reported.

Sources have revealed that digital trickery can be done, and the scene involving the late actor can have conversations where he is not focused but the people that the actor seems to talk to are focused instead.

A Lionsgate executive has also insisted that Hoffman’s untimely death would have ‘no impact’ on the production.

Hoffman was found dead in his New York apartment from an apparent drug overdose as he was discovered by his personal assistant with a needle in his arm. (ANI)
