This is from the British tabloid newspaper The Sun so usual caveats apply. According to Mel Smith (British comedian/actor and director of Radioland Murders) Lucas is buying up the rights of screen icons like James Dean to bring them back to life with CGI so they can "star" alongside live actors for a movie. Sounds completely bizarre and slightly mad, so knowing Lucas, there may be some truth in this. I wonder if this is one of George Lucas's "experiamental" movie projects he's been talking about for 30 years? EDIT: Locked after Lucasfilm denial.
