Hollywood actors are fighting for their own AI protections, including informed consent and fair compensation for the use of their digital replicas. The actors’ union strike continues to impact blockbuster films, with Paramount Pictures pushing back the release date of Tom Cruise’s final Mission: Impossible film. While there is enthusiasm about incorporating AI into filmmaking, there is concern about the lack of safeguards for actors. AI-generated programs have shown potential, but there are still limitations, particularly in the creation of concept artwork. The industry is still searching for an AI equivalent of Pixar’s Toy Story, which revolutionized computer-animated movies.
