Bob Hoskins Talks “Who Framed Roger Rabbit” Sequel
Bob Hoskins has revealed that he feels “too old” to take part in a Who Framed Roger Rabbit update.
Director Robert Zemeckis had previously hinted that a follow-up to the 1988 animated movie is in the works, due to technological advances in the area of special effects.
The 66-year-old actor, who played detective Eddie Valiant in the original, said that the sequel will have to be made without his participation.
He told MTV: “The thing is, you act with cartoons, you[‘ve] got to be able to bounce off the walls like a cartoon. So I’m too old. I’m too old now.
“I think [Zemeckis] could do a sequel. He wouldn’t be able to do it with me. I’m too old!”
