With all the news and postings regarding the predictions that have or have not become real, based on Back to the Future Part II, we might almost forget that Zemeckis and Spielberg have teamed up for another project that screams for a sequel. In 1988 they formed an alliance with the Disney-Studio's to show the world what might happen when the world of toons crashes with that of live-action characters in Who Framed Roger Rabbit ?.

Despite it's box-office success (a worldwide gross of almost $400 million and the single most successful film in it's year of release (Rain Man being number 1)), we have yet to see the sequel on the big screen.

Almost 2 years ago Gary K. Wolf (author of the Roger Rabbit-stories) gave it another attempt and delivered a script called The Scrooge in which Roger co-stars with Mickey Mouse. Despite the initial positive response, there hasn't been much action on translating the idea into a feature just yet, but with the Marvel- and Star Wars lines firmly installed, maybe now it will be time for Roger to re-appear (of course there is also that famous archaeologist who wants to have another adventure). Zemeckis is still positive about it and hopefully Spielberg has some spare time too.

Let's keep our fingers crossed.
