After more than 20 years of false starts, half-baked rumors and fledgling attempts at finding ways to improve on the special effects that made it seem so hyperactively revolutionary, the long-awaited sequel to ‘Who Framed Roger Rabbit?’ may be getting in toon sooner than later.
The second post is whether the Keira Knightley-starring remake of My Fair Lady will really ever move forward (I mean, why mess with a classic?):
Could the remake of ‘My Fair Lady’ be in trouble? It was nearly nine months ago that ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ director Danny Boyle was supposedly at the helm of the picture, which Keira Knightley has been attached to for some time. Then that fell through, and now, per Screenrush, there is word that ‘Atonement’ and ‘Pride & Prejudice’ director Joe Wright, after being buttonholed at the London Film Festival, has acknowledged he isn’t directing the remake, either.
