Coming Soon: Who Framed Roger Rabbit 3D, and sequel without Bob Hoskins


Who Framed Roger Rabbit is one of those cinematic films that garnered amazing reviews, acclaim, and a healthy box office and pretty much begged for a sequel. It was fun, witty, and even had some fun sing-a-longs that had both children and adults humming a long and tapping to the tunes with actor Bob Hoskins and Roger Rabbit. The sequel hasn’t happened yet but according to director Robert Zemeckis Disney is planning on a 3D re-release of the film to celebrate its 25th anniversary and they already have a script for a sequel:

Zemeckis has always been on board for a sequel, but the project has been stuck in development hell for over a decade. Meanwhile, Hoskins announced this August (2012) that he is to retire from acting after being diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease.

However, Zemeckis has yet to give up hope on Who Framed Rabbit 2. Talking to at the New York Film Festival on Sunday (October 14), he revealed that he has a script ready.

After expressing sadness about Hoskins’ retirement, the director said: “I have a script at Disney, and we’re just waiting for all the executive changes to settle down there.”

Meanwhile, Disney is planning a 3D re-release of the original Who Framed Roger Rabbit next November (2013) to mark the film’s 25th anniversary.


I’m not so sure I’m interested in a 3D re-release, but the idea of a sequel certainly catches my attention. I’ve heard this rumor for years and refuse to take any progress seriously until I see a green light. This might be the only sequel I’ve been waiting for longer than Ghostbusters…
