An animated re-imagining of The Stooge...
Ain't It Cool News reports that Who Framed Roger Rabbit producer Gary K. Wolf is currently working on an animated remake of The Stooge for Pixar and it would star Mickey Mouse and Roger Rabbit. A piece of pre-production artwork by Douglas Sirois was also revealed.
According to 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!"
The script Wolf is developing is based on the classic Dean Martin/Jerry Lewis movie of the same name. Also, "the film incorporates five specific locations from the Disneyland park [and] the Toon Train, an exciting and interesting way to travel through Toontown."
The movie is also said to feature real-life people, other Walt Disney icons, and also an appearance from Orson Welles.
