Tony Kaye’s film 1st Born is being released later this year and Kaye is already planning the cast for his sequel, 2nd Born. In a controversial move, the director of American History X has decided he wants to cast an actual robot with artificial intelligence. He plans to teach the AI different acting methods and techniques. Deadline reports the following is Kaye’s goal:
The story of 2nd Born centers on a young married couple, "Iranian born Ben and American Kate, whose complicated first pregnancy forces their extended family, from differing backgrounds, to find common ground for the sake of the baby"
This acting robot is expected to join several of the cast members that are expected to return for the sequel. What are your thoughts on using artificial intelligence for acting?
