A bit late responding to this thread but...

I've shot and composited a similar scene (without physical contact or a camera move.) You get into that stuff and you're talking motion-control cameras and many takes to match the handshake action. See some "Forest Gump" DVD extras for the challenges there.

Read about the shooting, compositing and watch a clip of my short film with a dead character watching his living self:
