Zemeckis Kills All But One Remake Rumor

Out doing the international press rounds for “Flight,” filmmaker Robert Zemeckis has squashed online reports of possible remakes and sequels to all his back catalogue of films – all except one.

Online chatter in recent months has seen talk of a sequel to “Who Framed Roger Rabbit,” and maybe even a reboot of “Back to the Future.” Don’t believe it, the only thing we might see though is a new look Joan Wilder.

“They are all Internet BS except ‘Romancing the Stone’. Probably. I know there are plans for them to remake that but I don’t know if they are actually doing it or not yet. That has nothing to do with me. The rest… it’s all… I don’t even know what it is.”

Asked if all that other talk was hopeful movie geek chatter, he laughed and responded: “Yeah, exactly… that’s what it is.”
