Bob Hoskins Signs on for Roger Rabbit 2
British actor Bob Hoskins confirmed that he’ll reprise his role as Detective Eddie Valient in an upcoming sequel to Who Framed Roger Rabbit.
The movie will reportedly abandon the combination of live-action and animation that made the original famous. Instead, director Robert Zemeckis wants to use motion-capture animation a la The Polar Express and A Christmas Carol to animate the human characters.
Despite signing on to appear, Hoskins is skeptical about the idea. “I don’t know how it’s going to work out,” he told the Daily Telegraph. “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.”
