'Hunger Games' to use CGI to recreate Philip Seymour Hoffman's final scenes

Philip Seymour Hoffman's death left a number of projects hanging in limbo, including "The Hunger Games."

Hoffman reportedly had just seven days worth of work left on one of the movies.

His absence leaves producers scrambling to figure out what to do with Hoffman's remaining scenes.

It's not clear what they might have in mind, but one option is to digitally recreate the actor.

CNN's Casey Wian spent time with a group of Oscar-winning visual effects artists to see how the technology would work.
