Roger Rabbit And Friends Get An Upgrade To Motion Capture?S

Two new tidbits from Toon Town have leaked out this week. First, the Roger Rabbit sequel has retained the original screenwriters for its new script. And second, major hints are being dropped that the animated characters may go Mo-Cap.

In an interview with MTV Robert Zemeckis revealed that the next Roger Rabbit film will retain the original writers, Peter Seaman and Jeffrey Price, but Toon Town may be in for an upgrade.

"All the other characters that [the cartoons] would sort of have fun with would be magnificent in performance capture technology...I wouldn't use it for the cartoon characters, because I think they should stay two-dimensional because that's what - I wouldn't dimensonalize Roger," he said. "And I couldn't dimensonalize Jessica even if I wanted to because she doesn't have a nose. We wouldn't want to give her a nose."

Well, thank god for that — Jessica Rabbit is perfect just the way she is, thank you very much. This is all pretty exciting, except for one giant flaw. Bob Hoskins still isn't on to return in the role of Eddie Valiant, and that's a pretty important character to maintain.
