We’ve been hearing a lot from Robert Zemeckis in the past few months in regard to a potential sequel to Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, his classic live-action/cartoon hybrid. We’ve heard some good news, like that the 2-D animated characters will remain 2-D, though some new 3-D characters could be introduced (Read: SDCC 09: Director Robert Zemeckis Says 2D Characters Would Remain That Way In A â€˜Roger Rabbitâ€™ Sequel). We’ve also heard bad news, such as Bob Hoskins saying that he wouldn’t be able to come back and do a sequel if it happened (Read: Bob Hoskins Says â€˜Who Framed Roger Rabbit 2â€² Wonâ€™t Have Eddie Valiant? I Call Shenanigans!).
To add to all of that, Zemeckis recently spoke to MTV and shared some new news that will get fans really excited: not only is he serious about wanting to make Roger Rabbit 2, but he already has the original movie’s writing team of Jeffrey Price and Peter Seaman developing a script right this moment.
Apparently the director also shared a few more bits of news, including a possible update on whether Eddie Valiant will return, and this information will be shared as the week moves forward.
Aside from Roger Rabbit, Price and Seaman also wrote Ron Howard’s live-action adaptation How the Grinch Stole Christmas and Shrek the Third.
