On the one hand, I'm interested to see whether CGI is up to the job of creating not just a convincing character, but a convincing recreation of a familiar character, including their movement and mannerisms. But on the other hand, this makes me uncomfortable.
It's not like effects are being used to complete a film that Cushing had been working on, as was the case with Oliver Reed's performance in "Gladiator", Brandon Lee's in "The Crow" or Paul Walker's in "Furious 7". A testament to the iconic power of our brightest stars, or just creepy? Cushing has no say in the process, so who's to say he'd be happy with having his likeness used in this way? His co-star Alec Guinness, for example, came to hate "Star Wars" after the film came out.
The idea of an actor signing away their likeness is explored in last year's movie "The Congress", in which Robin Wright plays a fictional version of herself who is re-created in CGI -- with rather trippy results. Surely we've got enough sequels and prequels, reboots and remakes without starting to revive actors of the past too.
Plus, we'll miss out on the nerdy fun of recasting the role, which is one of the few redeeming features of a prequel. Fearesomely becheekboned "Avengers" star Tom Hiddleston would surely have been born to play the part if only he'd been born a few years sooner, so I'm voting for Charles Dance. Or Ian Hart in a wig. Or maybe the whole story is just a rumour, and Mads Mikkelson will be playing Tarkin.

He's certainly got the cheekbones. Would a digital deceased star be a CGI step too far, or a fitting tribute to a beloved actor?damavand-uast.ac.ir/images/kids/2446.php
