The director has set the record straight on the recent rumor.

So much for the news that Robert Zemeckis is working on a sequel to “Who Frames Roger Rabbit?” The director has been busy making the rounds promoting his new live action film “Flight,” and he’s set the record straight on that particular rumor.

“I’m not planning any sequel. All I know is there['s] a draft for a sequel sitting at Disney [written by Peter S. Seamond and Jeffrey Price]. It’s good, but I don’t know what’s going on, it’s just a great script sitting,” he clarified to The Playlist.

That sounds like Zemeckis definitely isn’t planning on returning to the cult hit any time soon, but stranger things have happened in Hollywood. Considering the fact that Bob Hoskins recently retired, though, we’d guess that there would likely need to be a lot of forward momentum on the “Who Framed Roger Rabbit 2?” front to get Zemeckis back on board.

The news about the sequel actually came from an interview Zemeckis did with ShowBiz411. During the chat, Zemeckis had said, “I have a script at Disney, and we’re just waiting for all the executive changes to settle down there.”

It’s unfortunate that that quote was taken out of context, because we’d actually gotten pretty used to the idea of a “Who Framed Roger Rabbit?” sequel.
