London: Filmmaker JJ Abrams says he was once working on the sequel to "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" and even met Steven Spielberg for the same.

Spielberg was a producer on the original movie and Abrams met him to discuss writing a sequel in 1989, reported Digital Spy.

"When I was sixteen, Kathleen Kennedy called Matt Reeves and I. (She) asked if we would repair these 8mm films Steven had made when he was a kid. It happened because we were in a film festival, and she had read about us in the LA Times.

"Of course, we said yes and did the repairs. Years later, I got to meet Steven. I went into a meeting... actually, it was for a Roger Rabbit sequel. It was a whole thing. I actually have some storyboards for a Roger Rabbit short," Abrams said.

However, the 49-year-old "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" helmer could never reach the making phase.

"Honestly, we never really got to that phase. We were writing an outline, but it honestly went away before it was anything," he said.
