Philip Seymour Hoffman's character might be digitally recreated for the final scenes of "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay."

Before his recent death of a heroin overdose, the 46-year-old actor had one emotional scene left to film as Head Gamemaker Plutarch Heavensbee for "Mockingjay -- Part 2," according to The Hollywood Reporter.

"They seem to have plans (to complete the film without Hoffman) that don't seem very complicated," a source told The Hollywood Reporter. "You can do digital things, you can have conversations where you're not focusing on him but the people he's talking to."

As long as he doesn't come out looking like Jar-Jar Binks.

A representative for Lionsgate was not immediately available for comment.

Variety reported Hoffman had another seven days of shooting left for the final two movies in the franchise. Both installment were filmed at the same time. Production began in September of 2013 in Atlanta.

According to E! News, the film's cast returned Tuesday to the Atlanta set. Jennifer Lawrence appeared "tired and sad," a source reportedly told E!, and didn't interact much with others.

"Everyone seemed like they had lost a member of their family," the source said.

On Feb. 2, Hoffman was found dead in his New York City apartment, with a needle hanging from his arm -- an apparent heroin overdose. A private funeral was set to take place Friday at the Church of St. Ignatius Loyola in Manhattan, with a larger memorial service held later this month.
