As one of my all-time favorite films, I'm split down the middle on how to feel about this news. While I would be interested in knowing what story they go with (back in the 80's they were talking about a prequel and in the 90's it was Doom's return) but the use of CGI motion-capture just sounds forboding. I imagine they could still pull off traditional animation since even hand drawn works are done on computer systems now. I'm excited and scared at the prospect. Does anyone have a better understanding on how this technology works?

"I'll tell you what is buzzing around in my head now that we have the ability—the digital tools, performance capture—I'm starting to think about 'Roger Rabbit,'" he told us.
"It's the least most of us can do, but less of us will do more."
