It’s been a few weeks since we’ve heard any new developments on the dead-musicans-turned-to-holograms front, but today, The Hollywood Reporter brings news that Digital Domain Media Group, the creators behind the Tupac hologram, will begin producing a “series of ‘virtual’ Elvis likenesses for a range of entertainment projects.”
Digital Domain recently struck a deal with Core Media, the company who acquired Elvis’ likeness in 2011. The plan is to create virtual Elvis’s for film, television, and other venues. “Concerts appear to be a clear possibility,” as well, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
“His lifelong fans will be thrilled all over again and new audiences will discover the electric experience of Elvis the performer,” said Jack Soden, president and CEO of Elvis Presley Enterprises. “The high level of quality entertainment that both Core Media Group and Digital Domain deliver gives us great confidence that these projects will help continue the growth of Elvis’ rich legacy all over the world.”
