Roger Rabbit Sequel Seems To Be Coming Along Nicely

Robert Zemeckis’ Flight is due for release across the US in early November and has recently had a few screenings, including its official premiere at the New York Film Festival. Personally, I just can’t wait to see it, and word from those who have seen it has only encouraged me more. It’s a right cracker, apparently – tense, surprising, exciting, dramatic.

After the New York screening, Zemeckis had a few words with Showbiz 411‘s Roger Friedman, and some of them were not to do with Flight at all, but his planned sequel to Who Framed Roger Rabbit.

Friedman says:

Zemeckis told me last night that, although he’s sad about the retirement of Bob Hoskins, he has a Who Framed Roger Rabbit? ready to go. The brilliant 1988 combination live action and animation film has been begging for a sequel forever. “I have a script at Disney, and we’re just waiting for all the executive changes to settle down there,” Zemeckis told me. If I know Alan Horn, that’s a project he’ll get moving quickly. What great news!

Does Friedman know Alan Horn? At all? Pah. Doesn’t matter. The main thrust is that Zemeckis is still driving ahead with the project, and that things weren’t derailed by Bob Hoskins‘ untimely retirement.

The first Roger Rabbit film will be released on Blu-ray in the new year.
