YELLOW SUBMARINE Remake with Robert Zemeckis Officially Dead

Famed director Robert Zemeckis has officially abandoned his bold plans to remake The Beatles' YELLOW SUBMARINE. In a recent interview, he told Total Film "it's probably better not to be remade".

In 2009, Disney and Zemeckis announced a partnership to bring a reimagined take on the Beatles' 1968 animated film. But as of 2011, Disney walked away from the project, allowing Zemeckis to shop it around to other studios.

The Beatles' company Apple Corps and Zemeckis had put plans into motion to utilize the same technology for YELLOW SUBMARINE used in such animated movies as BEOWULF and A CHRISTMAS CAROL.

The original motion picture (released in the U.S. on November 13, 1968) based on the music of The Beatles was directed by George Dunning and featured the inspired art direction and design of Heinz Edelmann. The movie is set in Pepperland, an undersea paradise inhabited by music lovers who live in peace and harmony and are protected by Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. That is...until they are threatened by the music hating Blue Meanies. It's up to John, Paul, George and Ringo to set off on a magical adventure in their yellow submarine and bring music and harmony back to Pepperland.

For the remake, Zemeckis had reportedly nailed down a 16 song tracklist, and was in negotiations with Cary Elwes, Dean Lennox Kelly, Peter Serafinowicz, and Adam Campbell to portray the infamous group.
