But now British filmmaker Tony Kaye (American History X) wants an AI actor for his upcoming movie Win 2nd Born.
Kaye plans an AI robot, which he wants to train in various acting methods. (Fingers crossed for Marlon Brando-style method of acting.)
Kaye and producer Sam Khoze came up with the idea to skip common computer-generated visual effects in favor of an actual AI physical robot as an actor.
They also hope that the robot will receive recognition from the Screen Actors Guild, according to a report from Wednesday's deadline.
The hitherto unpublished film 2nd Born will be a sequel to the upcoming indie comedy "1st Born" (directed by Ali Atshani, 2018) starring Val Kilmer, Tom Berenger and Denise Richards. This film is about a young Iranian and an American couple whose complicated pregnancy forces their families to find a common ground.
Robots are becoming more and more powerful. They have already dancedand and .
The big screen feels like a logical next step.
