George Lucas has bought the rights to films featuring late stars such as Orson Welles and Barbara Stanwyck.
"Star Wars" master George Lucas has been buying up the rights to films featuring late screen legends in the hope of using technology to put them together in a new movie. The director plans to use advanced special effects to bring late stars such as Orson Welles and Barbara Stanwyck back to life and depict them alongside present day actors.
Lucas' pal, British actor Mel Smith, explains, "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."
Beside this project, George Lucas is preparing to release "Star Wars" saga in 3-D, starting with "Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace" which is allegedly set to come out in February 2012.
