|Without doing any research on this, I think the producers of Simone must have bagged the idea of using a synthespian. (Maybe after Final Fantasy flopped?) I've been seeing Simone previews and they're just using a standard blonde (human) supermodel type to play the supposedly all-digital actress. From the previews, the movie looks flippin' lousy. Wall to wall Al Pacino in full scenery-chewing mode. Too bad, I liked Andrew Niccol's first movie, GATTACA, quite a bit.
