‘Doggmen’ production team Created a Digital DMX For His Unfinished Scenes
DMX's "Cowboy" character will be Digitally in final action-packed film ‘Doggmen.’
The CGI used for X's unfinished scenes in upcoming Action Thriller 'Doggmen' is reportedly done so well you can't even tell which scenes were filmed before and after the late rapper's death.
Earl "DMX" Simmons will be brought back to life through CGI to complete his final film appearance. The Hip-Hop Icon died on April 2, at 50-years-old.
“It’s incredible and it looks so real,” says Tara Reid.
X’s final film, Doggmen, plan to use CGI to complete his final scenes. X had not completed his scenes for his role, named Cowboy, when he died in April. Doggmen is an action thriller written and directed by Antonio Simmons and co-starring Jeremy Meeks, Sean Blakemore, Chris Jai Alex, and Tara Reid.
Listen below: Reid told NME, “It’s his [DMX’s] last film and it was really interesting, because he didn’t get to finish the whole film.”
She compared the process to the one Fast 7 used to complete filming after the death of actor Paul Walker.
“They make these facial sculptures and they put it on a face, and it looks exactly like him. It’s crazy. The last couple of scenes that he has to film, that will be what they are doing. It’s incredible and it looks so real. So, that is how they are going to film his last scenes, and I’ll be in those scenes with him.”
DMX appeared in a number of films throughout his career including Romeo Must Die, Beyond the Law, and more.
