Interesting. I wonder how they will do the voices? Impersonations? Also, even if it's animation, there's still an issue with likeness of the actors, as well as copyright on the dialogue for the entire scene, even in a documentary for educational purposes ...

I know I already posted this on Current thoughts, but I'll leave this here for organization sake as well.

If they can really do this, and get the bulk of the original actors back to provide voice acting, it's gonna be huge. The BBC has had a great success restoring lost episodes of "Doctor Who" with animations synced to the original soundtracks. Something as close to that style as possible (with necessary assistance from some skilled voice actors to stand in for any deceased/uninterested/incapacitated original cast) would be brilliant.

I really, REALLY wish Criterion could be brought on board to incorporate this documentary & 4th ending reconstruction into the DVD/BD release CLUE deserves. Paramount's indifference to the film's enduring cult status (easily confirmed by a cursory glance at their lackluster BD release) is the only thing stopping that from ever happening. :(

The video suggest they’re going to get impersonators, not approach the original cast.

I know.

But if. Surely the actors would have heard about this by now. If, say, Leslie Ann Warren were interested in lending her voice to Scarlett again, would they really turn her down?
