'Yellow Submarine' remake casts its Beatles

Posted on

The Fab Four is set for writer-director Robert Zemeckis’ remake of the Beatles’ Yellow Submarine. Cary Elwes (The Princess Bride) will play George Harrison, Peter Serafinowicz (Couples Retreat) will portray Paul McCartney, Dean Lennox Kelly (BBC’s Robin Hood series) will assume the role of John Lennon, and Adam Campbell (Epic Movie) will be Ringo Starr, according to The Hollywood Reporter‘s Heat Vision blog. Zemeckis (A Christmas Carol, The Polar Express) will once again use 3D performance-capture technology, and he’ll sub in the Beatles tribute band The Fab Four for the performance sequences. They, however, will not sing — 16 actual Beatles songs will be used in the film.
