Roger Rabbit Sequel Perplexes Bob Hoskins

Although he has agreed to reprise his role in Robert Zemeckis's planned sequel to Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, Bob Hoskins has expressed his reservations about what he says is Zemeckis's intention to use "performance capture" animation for the human characters. In an interview with today's (Wednesday) London Daily Telegraph, Hoskins said, "The format they want to do is the same as we did for A Christmas Carol . The thing is, it looks like a cartoon, so how do you put a cartoon in the middle of a cartoon? I can't figure out how they are going to do it." Zemeckis himself has said that he plans to keep the cartoon characters 2D and the human ones 3D. "I couldn't dimensionalize Jessica even if I wanted to because she doesn't have a nose," he remarked in an interview with MTV News last year. Otherwise, he has said little about the project, except that it is in the works and that the writers of the original Roger Rabbit have written a script. "I don't know how it's going to work out," Hoskins told the Telegraph , noting that the charm of the original movie was in the way the cartoon characters seamlessly interacted with the humans. Zemeckis's current scheme to turn both into cartoons, he remarked, seems "a bit soft."
