Has Hollywood decided to cast a Human-like Robot in a feature film?
There had been many rumors about Hollywood casting a humanlike robot in one of their feature films until it was finally confirmed by sources like Futurism and people inside Hollywood, just yesterday.
“For the first time, an AI robot will star in a feature film”, per The Hollywood Reporter.
Erica is a special kind of thespian who is immune to SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. How’s that? Because she’s a humanoid robot. Erica will soon be the first artificially intelligent actor to take on the lead role in a film, according to The Hollywood Reporter. She has been given one on one session since the very beginning, to be taught with acting from scratch.
Nevertheless, due to COVID-19, actors are not signing up for films. Even if they are, acting up close or having intimate scenes on screen is harmful because of this contagious virus spread almost everywhere. However, to overcome these issues, Hollywood has set off to star Erica, so they wouldn’t have to face any trouble.
