Tom Hanks plans to act in films after his death

Artificial intelligence is already being used in the world of cinema. And for years Movies like The Irishman or Captain Marvel used the technology to rejuvenate or age their actors, and even others like Fast and Furious or Star Wars brought back their dead like Paul Walker or Carrie Fisher. Did this to trust the stars. In this scenario, Tom Hanks predicted that these advances would continue and assured that he could continue to appear in films after his death because of these innovations.

Hanks gave an interview to The Adam Buxton Podcast in which he discussed the role of artificial intelligence and deepfakes in cinema. “The first time we made a movie that had a lot of our data stored on computers, actually how we looked, was a movie called The Polar Express,” Hanks said, referring to Robert Zemeckis’ 2004 film. Saw that a computer was going to have the ability to put a zero and a one and turn it into a face and a character. Since then it has multiplied by a billion and we see it everywhere.”

“Now anyone can recreate themselves at any age with artificial intelligence or deepfake technology. You can get hit by a bus tomorrow and that’s it, but the interpretations will go on. Understanding artificial intelligence and deepfakes Beyond that, there will be nothing that can tell you it’s not really me. It will have a somewhat realistic quality. It’s certainly an artistic challenge, but also a legal one,” said the interpreter.

Hanks’ revelation about his image in artificial intelligence

Hanks then revealed that companies in the industry are already “investigating me about the legal implications of my face and my voice, and everyone else, which is our intellectual property.” “Certainly people will be able to tell what AI is, but the question is will they care. There are some people who won’t care, who won’t make it to that line,” he warned.

The actor shared his opinion just weeks after the premiere of Indiana Jones and the Call of Fate, which hits theaters June 29. The fifth installment of the saga, directed by James Mangold, uses technology to digitally rejuvenate Harrison Ford as the plot takes place in different timelines. In addition, Hanks himself will be digitally resurrected for Robert Zemeckis’ film Here, based on Richard McGuire’s graphic novel of the same name. The film, which will also star Robin Wright, will hit theaters in 2024.
