Tom Hanks and Robin Wright, along with additional castmembers, will be de-aged for Robert Zemeckis' upcoming Miramax movie Here, an adaptation of Richard McGuire's graphic novel that is set in a single room and follows its inhabitants over many years. This will be accomplished using a new generative AI-driven tool dubbed Metaphysic Live.

On Tuesday, artificial intelligence company Metaphysic, run by Tom Graham, revealed that it has entered into a strategic partnership with CAA to develop generative AI tools and services for talent, though details of the agreement were not revealed. In a statement, Joanna Popper, chief metaverse officer at CAA, said the agency looks forward to working with Metaphysic, as its tech "combined with their ethics-first approach and thought leadership" could "unlock an incredible opportunity for the entertainment industry and beyond."
