This is a total bastardization of an iconic figure for what will probably be a crappy forgettable movie. Leave James Dean alone.

How utterly vile.

Dean's greatness is singular to his performances in "Giant" "Rebel Without a Cause" and "East of Eden". Three films.

Why?

Because these acting marvels are the wondrous work of James Dean, a career desperate in its brevity and honest in its expression of inner conflict.

The shameless!

Appropriation of his likeness merely because digital prowess makes is possible?

His authenticity is compromised when such liberties are taken.

Scorcese's recent column speaks to this directly: marketing stratagems shaping movie offerings and appetites, and now including the resurrection of the dead to solicit - and to form - the paying public's attention.

Thrill in watching him as Jed Rink, from single-strike wildcatter to lost, wealthy, drunk politician.

Struggle with him to begin is life anew as Jim Stark.

Empathize with Cal as love eludes his embrace and denies him understanding.

Leave James Dean in peace.
