Crazy Rabbit Rumor, Roger coming back?

Okay. Steven Speilberg and his pals have just finalized the divorce of Dreamworks from Paramount. This will also free Speilberg to return to one of his original loves, Amblin. Amblin just happens to be the studio that partnered with the Walt Disney Company to produce Who Framed Roger Rabbit. Now Speilberg will be free to explore that partnership again.

So why do I bring this up? Because I just heard from a source that Gary Wolf has been working on a new Roger Rabbit story. It's likely a prequel, despite the fact that a sequel is already written. My source says that pre-production for the film is actually pretty far along. If so, that would be great news.

In doing research for this article, I went back to youtube to watch some of the Roger Rabbit shorts (you can find them all there) and marveled at how good they are. I also found this pretty quirky take on the trailer mashup, this time combining Frank Miller's Sin City with shots from Who Framed Roger Rabbit. It's actually edited together quite well.
