Zemeckis’ Yellow Submarine has sunk; Roger Rabbit 2 could be next?

Since “Mars Needs Moms” opening weekend was a total disaster for Disney, seems they’ve had enough of Robert Zemeckis and his creepy Mo-Cap movies and they’re kicking out the “Yellow Submarine” project:

So, at least we got rid of this project for a while… But this will mean Zemeckis won’t have enough funding for keeping “Roger Rabbit 2” alive? Let’s analyze the facts: Disney has been rather skeptical with Zemeckis projects since “A Christmas’ Carol” failed to meet box office expectations, shutting down their joint venture with the now troubled director (ImageMovers Digital). Besides, it’s said Zemeckis is looking for a live-action movie to direct after “Mars Needs Moms” failure. Add the lack of news about “RR2” to the mixture, and we have the perfect recipe for yet another failed attempt of pulling out a sequel from “Who Framed Roger Rabbit”.

Let’s wait for more news about this particular issue. Anyway, I feel like walking the same old path again… :(
