A computer-generated image has beaten all of Hollywood's leading ladies to star opposite Al Pacino in his forthcoming film, Simone.

Filmmakers said that they could not find the right actress for the role, and that it would be easier and cheaper to make a virtual star.

Suggestions that this will set a dangerous precedent for female actors working in the film industry were quickly put down.
