So, let's get this straight...
-You want to crop the image to widescreen from it's original aspect ratio, ruining the composition of the shot.
-You want to replace the original model photography with mediocre-at-best computer generated visual effects -- effects that don't even bother to be any more visually dynamic than the originals.
What a horrible, awful idea. Thankfully, not one we'll have to witness, except via fan-made YouTube clips.
