Soon after the passing of Phillip Seymour Hoffman, word came out that the final films in The Hunger Games would use a CGI duplicate to complete his performance as Plutarch. Now, director Francis Lawrence has said that they ultimately decided against it. It's probably for the best.
When Phillip Seymour Hoffman died last weekend, he apparently only had one scene left in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part II left to shoot — but it was a major one. So major, it seems, that Lionsgate will be forced to digitally recreate the actor for it.
