A few weeks ago, we heard the rumblings that Disney was considering a Roger Rabbit/Mickey Mouse team-up film, The Stooge. Despite the fact that such an idea is almost too awesome to exist, we have another update on the project.
AICN has discovered a piece of pre-production art from the movie, as well as a message from the artist Douglas Sirois:
"The Stooge has a treatment and we have a few writers brainstorming. We are developing more concept art. We have two directors interested and are actively looking for a Disney producer to take it to the next level. It is a great concept and a ton of fun developing. We also have been working with Gary K. Wolf on some Roger Rabbit short animation concepts that will also grab more attention and celebrate the 25th anniversary of the character this year!"
Roger Rabbit shorts? Sign me up! Here's the full piece of art:
As we previously reported, the film will be loosely based on the classic Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis movie of the same name. It will feature cameos by real-life figures, including Walt Disney and Orson Welles, and will somehow incorporate "five specific locations from the Disneyland park."
