James Dean is returning to the silver screens after a six and a half decade absence.

The Rebel Without A Cause star passed away in a car crash in 1955 but he will be starring in the Vietnam War era drama Finding Jack.

Today the ASX Small Ords is up 0.09 per cent to 2,903 points while the ASX 200 is up 0.61 per cent to 6,701 points
