His family has licensed use of his image to filmmakers Anton Ernst and Tati Golykh, with Ernst saying they regard the upcoming action-drama Finding Jack as "his fourth movie, a movie he never got to make".
The "Rebel Without a Cause" actor died in a vehicle crash at the age of 24 in 1955.
Dean rose to icon status for his performances in the 1955 films "Rebel Without a Cause" and "East of Eden", the latter of which landed him one of the first posthumous acting nominations in Oscars history.
It's also worth making a distinction between this latest freaky development and some of the recent uses of these techniques we've seen in high profile examples like the new Star Wars trilogy.
The movie, titled "Finding Jack", is an adaptation of the 2015 novel of the same name by Gareth Crocker, which details "the actual existence and abandonment of over 10,000 canine units at the end of the Vietnam War", according to a press release sent to CBS News.

A day later, on October 21, the officials released an updated figure showing a sudden surge in Morales' vote percentage. Amid shouts of "murderess, murderess" masked men dragged her through the streets barefoot to the bridge.
"We searched high and low for the ideal character to portray the role of Rogan, which has some extreme complex character arcs, and after months of research, we decided on James Dean", Ernst told the Reporter. "And after months of research, we decided on James Dean".
"We feel very honoured that his family helps us and would per chance probably purchase each precaution to make certain that his legacy as undoubtedly one of many most tale movie stars to this point is kept firmly intact". And the CGI James Dean won't actually be playing the character of Rogan. Directors Anton Ernst and Tati Golykh are to begin shooting November 17.
"The movie subject matter is one of hope and love, and he is still relevant like the theme of the film we are portraying", said Ernst.
"This is bad. Maybe we can get a computer to paint us a new Picasso".
Plenty of living actors took issue with the garish casting decision, as did many on Twitter, who found it ridiculous that the directors couldn't find another actor to play the part.

Zelda Williams, daughter of late actor Robin, was among others to express reservations, accusing the producers of "puppeteering the dead". The "Avengers: Endgame" star continued to call the restoration "awful" and a "complete lack of understanding".
Chris Evans and Elijah Wood have led the line of furious Hollywood stars on the internet. "Publicity stunt or not, this is puppeteering the dead for their "clout" alone and it sets such an bad precedent for the future of performance".
Despite the backlash, Dean may not be the only star reproduced using CGI in the future.
CMG Worldwide, which licenses intellectual property for dead celebrities including Dean, musician Chuck Berry, and astronaut Neil Armstrong, said the casting would open up new opportunities. "With the rapidly evolving technology, we see this as a whole new frontier for many of our iconic clients", said Mark Roesler, CEO of CMG Worldwide, the business agent for Dean's family.
