WETA to perform Silver Surfer CGI

SilverSurfer.jpgSo the Silver Surfer in Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, is to have CGI work done after all, and the wild back and forth speculation is over. It seems that the Internet has been saying there's either going to be full CGI or none for some time, but it does seem that there will be a mix. Using Doug Jones as the Surfer in a silver body hugging suit and then CGI on top, they'll produce a very effective character.

The story from Hollywood Reporter through Coming Soon tells us that WETA have been hired to do the job and that they've developed new motion capture techniques for the work. I'm still hoping they don't just swamp Jones in CGI and that they do hold back a little, but this is perhaps the best actual news we've heard on the character of the Surfer and I'm getting excited. Jones and then WETA for the CGI? That's got to be a great sign.



ok. i'm getting wet for a fantastic four sequel?
and i'm a guy.
