Zemeckis to Remake ‘Yellow Submarine’

Robert Zemeckis is eyeing yet another 3d motion capture movie. The ‘Back to the Future’ director is in talks to direct a remake of ‘Yellow Submarine’ for Disney.

The original film released in 1968 was about a soldier named Old Fred, who meets up with the Beatles. Fred travels in a yellow submarine to Pepperland.

Disney is on track to acquire rights to classic Beatles tunes, with the goal of not only using them in the film, but for a Broadway musical, and Cirque du Soleil production.

The idea of remaking it I’m sort of indifferent on, but I want Zemeckis to go back to live-action stuff so badly. That’s really the only part of the story that bugs me.
