For years, fans of the part-cartoon, part-live action classic Who Framed Roger Rabbit? have been chomping at the bit carrot to see a sequel!

But it seems their hopes have just had a piano of practicality dropped on their heads. And by the director no less!

Robert Zemeckis says that Disney would never let the movie get made today. He says:

Denzel Washington Survives The Worst Flight Ever In This Trailer

In the Forrest Gump and Cast Away director's first live action movie since the year 2000, Denzel Washington stars as a pilot who makes an amazing crash landing in Flight.

Despite his heroism, the media puts his life under intense scrutiny and the world discovers he drank heavily the night before which casts a heavy shadow over his accomplishment.

Did he save all of the passengers or did he put them in danger by flying after a night of boozing?

The plot looks like it's ripped right out of

Robert Zemeckis To Direct Wizard Of Oz Remake Using The Original's Screenplay!

What on Earth? Didn't the remake of Pyscho teach people anything??

Warner Brothers has reportedly approached director Robert Zemeckis to helm a live-action remake of The Wizard of Oz, using the ORIGINAL script from the 1939 version!

Although that film was produced by MGM, Warner Brothers acquired the rights to the screenplay after Ted Turner bought it. Warner Brothers than bought Turner's empire, which gave them the rights to the work!

Wow. We're happy to see Robert Zemeckis moving away from all of that creepy performance capture stuff, but this could be disastrous!

A lot of care must be taken if this actually goes into production!

Let's hope it ends up a nice tribute to the original, and not an embarrassing, unnecessary mess.

What do U think?? Should this Wizard of Oz remake happen??

Robert Zemeckis Is Moving Forward With Yellow Subma-remake

robert zemeckis moving forward with yellow submarine remake

At a Back To The Future red carpet event, Robert Zemeckis said that his Yellow Submarine remake was "all ahead full," which sounds like an indicator that he's moving forward with the movie.

While none of this is 100% confirmed, it looks like the movie will be shot in 3D, and the rumored cast is as follows:

-Dean Lennox Kelly (as John Lennon)

-Peter Serafinowicz (as Paul McCartney)

-Cary Elwes (as George Harrison)

-Adam Campbell (as Ringo Starr)

There have been mixed reports about whether or not this movie will actually happen, but given the fact that Zemeckis said the movie was happening so recently, we're inclined to believe it.

We have VERY mixed feelings about this project.

Are U excited about this project? Or do U think it's sacrilegious to remake a movie like this?

Even More Cuts At Disney!

Filed under: DisneySad Sad

How disappointing!

In order to save $$$$$$, Disney has decided to close the doors to their Bay Area-based motion capture facility!

The Marin County studio was built by ImageMovers Digital, a company co-owned by director Robert Zemeckis and Disney, and the technology was used for Jim Carrey's performance in A Christmas Carol.

"Given today's economic realities, we need to find alternative ways to bring creative content to audiences and IMD no longer fits into our business model," said Walt Disney Studios prez Alan Bergman.

The facility will be closed after Zemeckis finishes using the studio for the upcoming Mars Needs Moms!, with the doors officially closing in January 2011 and 450 employees out of a job.

Sad!
