Elvis Presley is still dead, but he’s making some comeback performances soon.
Digital Domain Media Group, creator of the “holographic” Tupac Shakur at Coachella, has announced an exclusive deal with the Core Media Group to jointly produce a series of “virtual” Elvis likenesses for a range of entertainment projects.
According to Digital Domain, a visual effects company that also has worked on such films as The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Tron: Legacy and X-Men: First Class, the virtual Elvis will soon be seen in film, on television and in other venues. Concerts appear to be a clear possibility. Digital Domain says it will announce soon where audiences can expect to see the first virtual Elvis performances.
