WFRR 2 is again dead: NOT THIS S**T AGAIN tipped me about Zemeckis finally giving a full explanation of his cryptic answer at the UK premiere of his latest movie, “Flight”, in which he confirms “Roger Rabbit 2” is shelved.

Yes, again. Like, ever.

Full info on Bleeding Cool’s article about this matter.

P.S. The only thing I can think now are curse words, so I apologize for the short entry. Hope this pic can express how dissapointed I am:

WFRR 2: Zemeckis’ crew says “IT’S ON”, Zemeckis itself says “NO WAY”… WHAT’S GOING ON?


Color us confused right now.

Bleeding Cool posted a couple of videos: one of those is very uplifting for the ones which (like us) are waiting the long-delayed sequel of “Who Framed Roger Rabbit”, while the other leaves us severely confused and annoyed, to say the least.

In the first one, Jack Rapke and Steve Starkey (producing partners of Robert Zemeckis) confirm there’s a “Roger Rabbit 2” in the works and that also the recently-retired Bob Hoskins “is ready to do it” (they talk about the possibility of bringing him with digital technology):

Meanwhile, the other video shows Bob Zemeckis denying any kind of sequel to Roger Rabbit, which makes us wonder: we know that possibly there won’t be a sequel, BUT a prequel (like the last failed attempts back in the 90’s), so… Is he being cryptic, like always? Or does he know something we don’t know about how Disney is considering a sequel to WFRR?:

Make your own conclusions, fellas. With the recent shelving of “Yellow Submarine”, it will no wonder us that RR2 will be canned… For the third time. Let’s hope for the best anyway.

Thanks to for the tip!

Zemeckis gives up on Yellow Submarine

Most people probably saw this coming, but here is the official statement from the man himself anyway. A recent article over at reports that Robert Zemeckis' controversial Yellow Submarine remake is dead as a doornail.
It seems the negative feedback from Beatles fans and the unsuccessful Mars needs moms have gotten to him and he has no interest in remaking it anymore.
This could be good news for us Roger fans however since now he will hopefully have more time to complete RR2.
