Yellow Submarine resurfaces

Posted August 23rd, 2009 by debritz

Variety reports that film director Robert Zemeckis and the Disney company want to remake Yellow Submarine as a 3D film with possible stage mmusical and Cirque du Soleil spin-offs. The original 1968 George Dunning film was a psychedilc trip (who would have thought Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds was a drug reference?) but I'm guessing this one will be more family friendly. Although the rights haven't been sorted out, the remaining Beatles have been rather accommodating in terms of licensing their music lately, so it could be a starter.
