"Very soon, this whole structure that we all love so much will be gone," prophesies Danny Huston's wide-grinning movie studio head in Ari Folman's "The Congress".He's speaking to Robin Wright, who plays a version of herself in the film. All the trappings of movie stardom -- "the trailers ... the skipping out on PR ... the coke ... the sexual kinks," he glowers, is disappearing. The industry is changing, and he couldn't be happier to see picky actors like Wright vanish.What he wants is to scan her, to "sample" her and turn Wright, or as he says, "this thing called Robin Wright," into a digital avatar that the studio can control completely. She just has to sign, never act again, and she (or specifically a younger, 34-year-old computer-generated version of her) will live on in whatever movies Miramount wants.
