Eurogamer: We're used to seeing famous actors' faces implanted into footage of movies via the problematic power of the deepfake. But what about famous actors' faces implanted into footage of video games?
Man this deepfake algorithm is on another level...
Yeah, it's keeping Kim Jong Un alive.
oh man, i had to check in just to say that this comment made me laugh out loud cause its probably true!
It'd be cool if they applied the same tech to voices and made him sound like Fillion reading the same lines. It's a shame that he's getting on a bit because a young version of himself would have been immaculate casting for the film.
Firefly age would have been perfect.
He could still fit older Drake fantastically. That said, had he been cast a decade ago, he could have pulled him off through to now.
For some reason I don’t see that movie ever coming out or it’ll be bad when it does
Just make it a cgi movie everything does not have to be live action. DC comics need to go all animated because the animated movies are always great i cant wait for them all each year.
Why CGI? Uncharted is the type of game thst would translate really well into the big screen given the right cast and story
I personally would have liked Sony to just take a chance with Nolan North if they made the film straight after Drakes Fortune. The guy is an actor aswell, as I've seen in his interviews Nolan just decided to take the voice acting roles all those years ago as they were more there for him on the spot than the acting ones.
See what we could have had if studio execs weren't idiots?
Seriously though, the fan made Nathan Drake film staring FIllion is amazing! Exactly what you would want from an Uncharted movie, sadly we're getting Tom Holland as a young Nathan Drake... seriously who is making these decisions?
Should have put Felcia Day in for Elena. Dr. Horrible virtual reunion!
She has become more annoying the more famous she has gotten, plus i like the game character looks better.
I would like to see them do the opposite. Put Drakes face from U4 into the live action scenes.
Wow that is really impressive. I still say Fillion even though he's an older guy would still make a great Nathan Drake in a movie, he'd be far better then some of the people I've heard are supposed to be in the movie if they actually ever make it.
I feel bad for those working on the movie, the expectations are so high. There's also the short fan film that came out like a year back with Dillion that was brilliant. I'm patiently waiting for the movie cause I'm very curious
When people were saying he should play Drake in the movie, I wasn't so sure but after seeing this I think they were right
If you've ever watched Firefly, Fillion is basically Drake through and through. Same look, same snarky attitude, on screen and off. He really is the ideal actor for a role like that, and the fact nobody made it happen kind of sucks.
You should watch the short film he did where he does actually play Drake.
Looks better then the CGI Arnold in Terminator Genisys and Terminator Salvation or the Patrick Stewart CGI face that was used in The Wolverine movie. This to was also impressive https://youtu.be/Gz0QZP2RKW...
I wonder if it is possible to see game developers use this kind of technology in their games. No one can tell me Bethesda's Elder Scrolls games have good faces, so using stuff like this could be beneficial for games.
It's a really interesting prospect for sure, I do wonder how the cost of implementing this kind of technology compares with the cost of the latest mocap technology. The wrinkle here though, I suppose you need high quality mocap in the first place in order for the AI to do a good job of applying the deep fake?
PS5 graphics on the face here!!! I can see this technique on next-gen!
It's a matter of time. Advanced game graphic and type of deepfake technique will be able to produce 'a new movie of dead actor' or 'a true remake of old movie' and will become a major category of commercial film.
There would probably be laws put against it, because it's pretty shitty on many levels, or the actors while alive would have to sign paper where it says that they allow it, like organ donators.
Likeness is protected. They've had to pay actors to use their likeness in videogames and such, and I believe a studio used James Dean's likeness in a movie via this kind of technique, but had to pay his "estate" (or whatever) a fee to be able to use him in the film. It certainly won't be a free for all.
About damn time
These things are getting so crazy. Reality can’t be trusted anymore lol
