A little while ago, talk surfaced of an animated remake by Pixar of the Dean Martin/Jerry Lewis film The Stooge, starring none other than Mickey Mouse and Roger Rabbit.
And now it appears that the project is definitely moving forward, with conceptual artist Douglas Sirois confirming to Filmoria that work in underway.
“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!”
There is also some promo art for the project.
