After years of working in the (self-imposed) motion-capture gulag, Robert Zemeckis returns to live-action with Flight. He’s got other live-action work lined up, but one of his next projects may go back to his classic blend of live-action and animation, Who Framed Roger Rabbit?.
A Roger Rabbit sequel has been talked up for years and years, but seemed to have a big roadblock thrown in front of it over this past summer when Bob Hoskins, the lead of the original movie, retired from acting. But Zemeckis says that a sequel is still possible, just as soon as Disney gets its house in order. Read More »

We’ve all done it. We’re watching a movie and an image flashes by in an instant. Did we really just see that? So we patiently wait, remote in hand, until the precise second. You click the pause button like the whole remote just suddenly lit on fire and there it is….most likely one of these moments. A subscription based British movie site called LOVEFiLM (basically a European version of Netflix) took votes from their 1.6 million subscribers and came up with the top ten scenes in movies that people pause. And, though Kevin Williamson wrote about it in Scream, Tom Cruise’s penis in All the Right Moves did not make the list. Read More »

Even as a kid, two films I never thought I’d see sequels to were Top Gun and Who Framed Roger Rabbit? Both Eighties hits certainly could have continued with their storylines but there wasn’t a need because each wrapped up in a cohesive and satisfying way. In fact, if it wasn’t for each film working so well, neither would have reached the “New Classic” status they currently enjoy. But of course, in today’s no-new-idea Hollywood, each film is getting sequelized over twenty years after release and the only thing fans can hang their hat on is that the original filmmakers – Tony Scott and Robert Zemeckis – are part of the process. Both recently spoke about the very latest on each film and when you get to hear from the big men themselves, it’s worth listening. We’ve got the updates after the break. Read More »
Robert Zemeckis has been loosening us up for a Who Framed Roger Rabbit sequel for some months now, letting slip the odd reference here and there that he’s been keen to give the follow on a good crack. In April he said that he had a good idea for the second installment; on July 22nd he said he’d been discussing the film with Bob Hoskins; on July 23rd he told the Comic-Con audience that he could neither deny nor confirm any plans for a sequel.
Now he’s just come out and revealed that not only is he gunning for another run at the funny Bunny, but also that writing on the new screenplay already currently underway. Purist fans of the original will probably jump for joy at his revelation on who is wielding the pen, because it’s none other than the scribes of part one, Peter Seaman and Jeffrey Price.
I think that Zemeckis has now been sufficiently loose lipped that we can start to read between the lines a little. Let’s rake over some of his quotes after this break.
