Robert Zemeckis Blames Death Of Roger Rabbit Sequel On Regime Change At Disney

Expanding on his short, sharp naysaying on the Flight red carpet, Robert Zemeckis has told Empire‘s podcast crew that regime changes at Disney are to blame for the death of Roger Rabbit.

There’s been a lot of changes at Disney Studio. I don’t think it’s on the cards, I don’t think it’s going to happen…

Zemeckis wouldn’t say anything about what the stalled script entailed as “you never know” but did confirm that Eddie Valiant was amongst the cast. How? Again, no reveal – but the script is apparently very clever.

One day, Zemeckis says, when the time is right we’ll find out what we’ve missed out on. He also promised to reveal his 3D test for the aborted do-over of The Beatles’ Yellow Submarine.

Elsehwere in the podcast, Denzel Washington expresses his doubts about appearing in Safe House 2. Though a screenplay is being worked up with his character in it, Washington says:

I dunno, we’ll see. Hmmm. Hmmm.

And he pronounces those Hmmms in the most disparaging way I can imagine.

Flight is out in the UK this Friday and on DVD and Blu-ray in the US next Tuesday, It’s a fine film. Fully recommended.

Here’s the podcast in full.
