Yellow Submarine Remake To Start Filming In April
For all of the hubbub that surrounded Robert Zemeckis' remake of Yellow Submarine, we haven't heard anything about the project since January when Cary Elwes, Dean Lennox Kelly, Peter Serafinowicz and Adam Campbell were cast as George Harrison, John Lennon, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, respectively. Since then, Disney shut down Zemeckis' mo-cap workshop in order cut costs. So what of The Beatles? One of it's stars says that the project is still alive and that it will start up next year.
MTV caught up with Elwes at this past weekend's New York Comic Con, where he was promoting Saw 3D, and the actor announced that the plan is to begin production next April. In addition to providing the voice Elwes will also be putting on the mo-cap suit, but couldn't talk about his performance too in depth because of a non-disclosure agreement. He did, however, say that it will be a "really exciting film" and that he's "thrilled to be part of it."
I was over the moon a few weeks back when it was announced that Zemeckis would return to live-action with the film Timeless. Having sat through The Polar Express, Beowulf and A Christmas Carol, I can assure you that the uncanny valley is real, and I was glad to see the Back To The Future director finally move away from it. Now it seems that Zemeckis wants to get this last one out of his system and I say go for it. Remake Yellow Submarine, feel satisfied building characters with soulless eyes and get back to making movies like Who Framed Roger Rabbit.
