Roger Rabbit set up again?
So, Robert Zemeckis has announced that he is considering a sequel to his classic Who Framed Roger Rabbit. Apparently the film will mix live-action and animation. There’s no surprises there, of course, but what does Zemeckis mean by “live action” these days? He is reluctant to accept that the nasty stopmotion technique he’s used for The Polar Express and this week’s A Christmas Carol counts as animation (see review, page 12).
Does this mean that the creepy, shiny pseudo-Bob Hoskins who appears in the Dickens adaptation will turn up in Roger Rabbit 2? We must pray that he sees sense.
