Bruce Willis has retired from acting, suffering from aphasia — which can impact a person’s ability to read, write and speak.

But he could possibly still make his way to the big screen, thanks to technology.

It’s true, as a Delaware-based company known as Deepcake has actually created a digital version of Bruce Willis.

Yes, it’s odd … but this could be the future for some entertainers.

“We make Digital Twins of people you won’t tell from real,” the website touts, showing how engineers have digitalized Willis’ face on another man’s body.

But this isn’t just photoshop. This is acting.

“With the advent of the modern technology, I could communicate, work and participate in the filming, even being on another continent,” Willis said in a testimony on Deepcake’s website. “It’s a brand new and interesting experience for me, and I am grateful to our team.

“I liked the precision of my character. It’s a great opportunity for me to go back in time. The neural network was trained on content of “Die Hard” and “Fifth Element”, so my character is similar to the images of that time.”

Willis, 67, now can reportedly create projects in less than a week via Deepcake, with his estate having the final say over anything that’s made.

Is this the future for retired actors in Hollywood? It’s hard to say. We can’t even be sure it will work for Willis when it comes right down to it.

At any rate, the real Willis actually acted in three movies prior to his retirement. The latest, “Detective Knight: Rogue” hits theatres on Oct. 21.
