Robert Zemeckis has trashed talk about his involvement in a rumoured return for beloved character Roger Rabbit, in a sequel to his 1988 groundbreaking classic WHO FRAMED ROGER RABBIT. There has also been speculation that a reboot or remake of time-travelling family favourite, BACK TO THE FUTURE, was on the way, which the director also dismissed while promoting his latest movie – the Oscar-nominated drama FLIGHT.

Talking to Getty Image’s Entertainment Video team in London, he was asked about the projects, Zemeckis commented:
They are all internet BS except ROMANCING THE STONE. Probably. I know there are plans for them to remake that but I don’t know if they are actually doing it or not yet. That has nothing to do with me. The rest… it’s all… I don’t even know what it is.”
When he was asked if it was just “hopeful movie geek chatter” he laughed:
Yeah, exactly… that’s what it is.
Does this news make fans of the films happy? As always, we’d love to know!

Craig was our great north east correspondent, proving that it’s so ‘grim up north’ that losing yourself in a world of film is a foregone prerequisite. He has been studying the best (and often worst) of both classic and modern cinema at the University of Life for as long as he can remember. Craig’s favorite films include THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION, JFK, GOODFELLAS, SCARFACE, and most of John Carpenter’s early work, particularly THE THING and HALLOWEEN.
