The ‘Roger Rabbit’ Sequel Script is ‘Wonderful’, Says Robert Zemeckis, But Disney Isn’t Making It

It’s been 30 years since the ground-breaking Who Framed Roger Rabbit hit theaters, and it might be 30 more before we ever see a sequel. The blend of live-action and animation was a smash-hit at the box office, but despite several attempts, a follow-up never got off the ground. According to Robert Zemeckis, the latest Roger Rabbit sequel script is done, and pretty darn good. But Disney doesn’t seem interested.

Guillermo del Toro Names Spielberg’s Catch Me If You Can the Most Underrated Great Movie of All Time

Director Guillermo del Toro, as one Twitter wag put it recently, is the kind of film friend we’d all love to have--a great conversationalist, a good listener, a fan at heart, and an encyclopedic knowledge of the form. And while it’s not rare to hear him praise Steven Spielberg, this recent Twitter post most people by surprise: Catch Me If You Can is honestly a film I haven’t thought about since I watched it in the theaters. That’s not to say it was bad--it was an enjoyable romp with Le...

‘Star Wars Episode 9’ Secrecy is Like Being in the CIA, Says Mark Hamill

It’s no secret that secrets of Star Wars must be kept secret, for fear of the secrets secreting and ruining everything (especially the secrets). But the secrecy around Star Wars has gotten even more extreme than you might realize. There are criminals in movies that get transferred between prisons that don’t have as much security as the secrets of Star Wars. Star Wars saga star Mark Hamill has been around since the beginning of the franchise, and it should come as no surprise that the secrecy su...

I’m outta here.'” I’m kidding, of course. Smith, as rabid a Star Wars fan as you’ll ever find, brought back several tidbits from his travels to the film’s...

Pre-‘Force Awakens’ Luke Skywalker Art Reveals ‘The Last Jedi’ Story Was Always Going to Happen

Not to open up a can of worms, but one of the major complaints regarding Star Wars: The Last Jedi was the way the film handled Luke Skywalker’s story arc. Several fans were outraged that Luke would be hiding out on an island, ignoring his friends. The blame fell squarely on Rian Johnson, with many accusing him of not understanding Luke as a character. But here’s a twist: newly surfaced concept art created before both The Last Jedi and The Force Awakens proves that this was the direction Luke’s ...

‘Force Awakens’ Deleted Scene Would’ve Featured a Different Actor as Young Luke – Here’s What He Looked Like

Luke Skywalker remained out of sight, but never out of mind, through much of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Then he appeared as a bearded Mark Hamill in the final few seconds of the film. But we almost saw a glimpse of Luke earlier in the film, through the tumultuous vision that Rey receives when she picks up Luke’s long lost lightsaber. The twist: he wouldn’t have been played by Hamill but by actor Robert Boulter, in a re-enactment of the famous The Empire Strikes Back duel. And now, we know wh...

‘The Saint’ Remake on the Way, Chris Pratt in Talks to Play the Master of Disguise

Before he became James Bond, Roger Moore graced the small screen as The Saint, aka Simon Templar, a thief and master of disguise who originated in a series of books in the 1920s and quickly expanded into the world of radio, comics, TV, and movies. Val Kilmer played the character in a film in 1997, and now, more than twenty years later, it looks like Guardians of the Galaxy star Chris Pratt will be the newest actor to get buried under loads of makeup and don a fake mustache as “the Robin Hood of...
