Updates on Robert Zemeckis projects Major Matt Mason and Roger Rabbit sequel

Robert Zemeckis is responsible for directing two great movies that came out when some of the schmoes like myself were growing up-- BACK TO THE FUTURE and WHO FRAMED ROGER RABBIT. While there will be no more BTTF films, there is still talk of another ROGER RABBIT.

From some Zemeckis updates (via The Film Stage), we have this quote from the director during the premiere of the upcoming, FLIGHT starring Denzel Washington. Zemeckis had this to say on the possible sequel, "I have a script at Disney, and were just waiting for all the executive changes to settle down there." That's it. Does that mean it will eventually get made? No. As far as anyone knows, the film is just a pipe dream of Zemeckis'.

What about the fate of MAJOR MATT MASON which would re-team Zemeckis and Tom Hanks? The pair are apparently getting independent financing for the project. The film will be shopped to possible buyers during a run to the American Film Market. MAJOR MATT MASON is based on an astronaut toy from 1966. Hanks wrote the script with Graham Yost (SPEED).

I'll take any Zemeckis/Hanks project. As for ROGER RABBIT, I'm not holding my breath.

Is there some kind of hate against BTTF Parts 2 and 3? They way you say "While there will be no more BTTF films" read to me a lot like you were saying "There was never a trilogy, just the first BTTF". And you say he only RZ only directed two great movies, what does that make the other BTTFs? IMO, Part 2 was the best of the 3.

Yeah, as much as I'd love to see a Roger Rabbit sequel, I'd much rather it be a spiritual successor like Prometheus than a direct continuation of the story and characters. Something set in that universe, but not necessarily about Roger Rabbit specifically.

I too would love to see him and Hanks back together. I'm surprised they need independent financing, though part of me rejoices if it means they won't have the studio watching their every move.

As for Roger Rabbit. One of my favorite movies, but for the love of God, STAY A PIPE DREAM. Especially with Hoskins retiring, there is increasingly no place for a sequel to exist.

Fuck I'm just thrilled he's back to live-action films.
