After the Variety article fanfare, open casting hubbub, and copious performance-capture animation hating, we finally have Robert Zemeckis’ cast for Disney’s upcoming animated Yellow Submarine remake. Ready for the Forrest Gump director’s choice of Beatles? According to Reuters, Cary Elwes (The Princess Bride) will play George Harrison, Peter Serafinowicz (Shaun of the Dead) will play Paul McCartney, Adam Campbell (Epic Movie) has the Ringo Starr role, and… wait for it… Dean Lennox Kelly (Doctor Who) landed the John Lennon part.
Beatles tribute band Fab 4 will cover performance sequences, and actual Beatles music has been licensed by EMI, Michael Jackson’s estate, and all the other suits that own Beatles jams at this point.
Inconceivable! (haha… I had to.) Don’t know what more to say about this
trainwreck interesting project except good luck!
