The wonders of deep fake have taken Sylvester Stallone as he appeared in The Expendables 3 and de-aged him. See it in action in the video above.
In this video, Stallone looks remarkably like the Demolition Man-era Stallone. This is probably because, remember, that this isn’t just a case of ‘filtering’ Stallone and smoothing the skin, the young Stallone has actually been brought in and merged with him. It is deep fake after all. Is this the way of the future of movie de-aging?
James Cameron once spoke of de-aging actors and said that the technology is going to become indistinguishable, citing Dirty Harry as an enticing example that he’d find interesting.
Anyway, it doesn’t always work, not even in the above Stallone video. But consider that the above video is quite good for an amateur with no resources or money.
