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!

Make up yer mind Rob!

Perhaps Rob was trying to butter us all up in an attempt to get everyone to stop pestering him about Roger 2 and focus on getting it made without as many interruptions.

Yeah, but now he will be even more bugged because of this apparent contradiction.

Let's see how things keep going =)

I'm confused! I don't know what to believe...... is it happening, is it not happening, WHAT THE HECK?!

Nickyle Edwards said...

I have to be honest. It sounded like after Zemeckis said no such thing was happening,he said "yes," like he was joking. And does Bob Hoskins still want to star in the film even though he just retired?

Bunnyfriend said...

Well, sadly that isn't the case Nickyle. Check our latest entry =(
