Twenty-five years after the release of Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Robert Zemeckis will once again mix real-life people with animated rabbits. The director has signed on to bring Kate DiCamillo's 2006 young-adult novel The Miraculous Journey Of Edward Tulane to the screen. As adapted by screenwriter Jeff Stockwell, the film will follow a rather self-involved porcelain rabbit who's thrust into a series of life-altering adventures after being being separated from his 10-year-old owner. Presumably, it should similarly offer Zemeckis an opportunity to reunite with his beloved motion-capture, in what—after Flight and the just-announced Marwencol, featuring only boring, analogue human beings—will surely be its own joyous reunion.
