'Who Framed Roger Rabbit' sequel in the works



Roger rabbit It's been 21 years since Who Framed Roger Rabbit changed the way Hollywood studios thought of animated feature films. So you know what that means, right?


Robert Zemeckis, who directed the 1988 flick, tells MTV News that he finally has commissioned a script, to be penned by Roger Rabbit's original writers Jeffrey Price and Peter Seaman.

Still no official word on whether the new movie is a remake or a sequel. (Does it matter at this point?) Zemekis is also being quiet on what new technologies he'll use and which characters will return. If you've seen Kathleen Turner lately on Showtime's Californication, you might rethink wanting her back as Jessica Rabbit. Her voice sounds a bit gruff these days. (Too many cartoon anvils to the head?) Just remember: She's not bad. She's just drawn that way.


5. "Not prostate, you idiot, PROBATE!"

4. "I would have been here right after you called, but I had to shake the weasels."

3. "Is that a rabbit in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?"

2. "Oh, Roger. You were magnificent. ... Better than Goofy."

1. "Nice booby trap."
