It’s official: Roger Rabbit 2 is being “dipped” again

There aren’t any surprises here, after tons of promises about getting a sequel from our favorite movie and being dissapointed again and again.

As reports, “Roger Rabbit 2” got stalled since the script from the proposed sequel is taking too long to be settled, and producers Kathleen Kennedy and Steven Spielberg aren’t willing to get into Robert Zemeckis’ project by the moment. Put into Kathleen Kennedy’s words:

“We’ve attempted a script, but it’s not really moving forward right now,” said Kennedy. “That’s not to say it won’t in the future, but there’s no spotlight on it now.”

Yup: no Roger Rabbit 2. We saw this coming.

No surprise there. After such a long absence of news I pretty much expected to have fallen in development hell or something. Depressing, most depressing.

I'm not depressed at all, Alex. In fact, I'm very used to the fact that Roger Rabbit was a unique film made in the most appropiate time, with the most appropiate people and which got a lot of success that can't be easily replicated.

Please re-read the quote.

They said "stalled", not "cancelled" or anything like that.

So, it's not Dipped. It has just been put on the backburner for the time being.

I know Phillip. But we're talking about Roger Rabbit: the king of "stalled-projects-that-eventually-bit-the-dust,-push-daisies,-say-their-farewells".

So my hopes are understandably low.

I understand, but a little optimism won't hurt.

Oh, and BTW,here's a little blog entry I just found earlier this evening, published in October:

It's about actress Paula Patton and it says that she's going to play the villain of the Roger sequel, Witch Boom. And that bit of news has gained a little momentum on the internet.

I know it probably doesn't mean much, but I'd like to take that as a good sign.

Just thought I'd share.

Any news, while small, are good news! Thanks for your support, Phillip =D
