Who framed Roger Rabbit: there is a sequel
Robert Zemeckis has directed in the 1988 Who framed Roger Rabbit, which has been a great success, which lasts to this day.
The director has recently confirmed that there is a script for a sequel, even if the nature of the story could prevent him to be a priority for Disney.
“I don't know. I don't know where it fits in their universe. There is a princess in it, so I don't know where it would be,” the director told Yahoo! when asked if the studio was interested in the project, “There is a wonderful screenplay that Disney has, which is really good, but I don't think that it is on their radar.”
While the original film explored a world where cartoons and humans living together in a more or less harmonious, it is also true that it was an adventure full of comedy and murder; so he was much more mature than most of the other Disney movies. Therefore a sequel would be understandably more difficult to launch on the market.
The director had previously talked about the details of the screenplay to The Telegraph, describing it as a move of Roger and Jessica Rabbit “from the film noir world of the ’50s”. With the star Hoskins passed away in 2014, the director had admitted that “it would be very difficult to do but we would do a Bob Hoskins digital”, and would also be “more a continuation, that a sequel”.
Zemeckis states that not only Disney seems to not be interested but that is a difficult task to offer to the fans a sequel to satisfying that actually do not want to entirely: “When the audience asks for a sequel, what they are doing is expressing their enthusiasm for the film they have just seen. This means that they will have a love-hate relationship with what will come after because they want it to be the same movie, but different. If it is too similar and does not like. And if it is too different, they don't like. There is nothing more difficult.”
Despite the passion of the filmmaker for the project, however it seems that the development of a sequel will not evolve soon.
