A sequel to 1988 fantasy comedy "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" could be brewing. Talking to MTV News, director Robert Zemeckis offered an interesting scoop of the matter when he confessed that he is indeed toying with the idea to bring the ill-behaved rabbit back to the big screen.
"I'll tell you what is buzzing around in my head now that we have the ability - the digital tools, performance capture - I'm starting to think about 'Roger Rabbit'," the 56-year-old Academy Award-winning helmer stated. Still when pressed further on the potential film's details, the "Beowulf" director responded with a rejection, "I can't give you more details."
While nothing is certain yet on the possible new installment of "Roger Rabbit" movie, the original 1988 "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" has successfully rekindled an interest in the golden Age of American animation. Combining the use of traditional animation and live action with elements of film noir, the film was nominated for seven Oscars and won four of them.
Based on Gary K. Wolf's novel "Who Censored Roger Rabbit?", the movie was starred by Bob Hoskins, Charles Fleischer, Christopher Lloyd, Kathleen Turner and Joanna Cassidy. Steven Spielberg served as the producer, while Robert Zemeckis and Richard Williams directed it.
