‘Roger Rabbit’ Sequel Update: Script Is Coming Along Slowly But Awesomely, Says Robert Zemeckis

Back in April of 2009, director Robert Zemeckis broke the exclusive news to MTV that he was planning a sequel to his 1988 live-action/animation hybrid hit “Who Framed Roger Rabbit,” about a cartoon-hating detective (working on the script for a sequel, and Zemeckis would employ performance-capture technology and 3-D in filming it. Needless to say, our eyes were popping out of our head, cartoon bunny-style.

But then, nothing on the “Who Framed Roger Rabbit” sequel front for a whole year… until MTV News caught up with Zemeckis this week at a red-carpet event celebrating the 25th anniversary of “Back to the Future.”

We asked the director whether Price and Seaman were still typing away at that script, to which he replied: “That is correct, that is true. They’re slow,” he laughed.

So the screenplay isn’t finished yet… but has Zemeckis read any of it? “It’s great,” he said, nodding his head enthusiastically. “Oh, it’s going to be great. I think it’s going to be great.”
