Yellow Submarine now not happening at Disney

by Paul Heath

Some bad movie news this afternoon with details that Robert Zemeckis’ planned adaptation of the Beatles classic YELLOW SUBMARINE is officially done. The reasoning behind it is unknown, but has apparently long been in trouble over at Disney. The film was to be directed, and even had a cast in the form of Cary Elwes, Dean Lennox Kelly, Peter Serafinowicz and Adam Campbell as the fab four.

Zemeckis produced MARS NEED MOMS, a film that used similar motion capture technology to his other flicks THE POLAR EXPRESS and A CHRISTMAS CAROL, didn;t fare too well at the US box-office this past weekend, bagging just $6.9 million from a reported budget of $150 million.

Coming Soon, who report the news that Submarine is erm, now sunk, say that the bad performance of ‘Mars’ has nothing to do with the cancellation. The question now, is if the film will be picked up at another studio, and indeed is Zemeckis is still on board…
