Heat Vision reports that Cary Elwes, Dean Lennox Kelly, Peter Serafinowicz and Adam Campbell are in talks to play The Beatles in Robert Zemeckis’ Yellow Submarine at Walt Disney Pictures.
In the 3D performance capture film, Kelly (BBC’s “Robin Hood”) is portraying John Lennon, Serafinowicz plays Paul McCartney, Elwes (A Christmas Carol), is George Harrison, and Campbell will be Ringo Starr.
The 1968 animated feature was based on the music of The Beatles and featured the inspired art direction and design of Heinz Edelmann. The movie is set in Pepperland, an undersea paradise inhabited by music lovers who live in peace and harmony and are protected by Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. That is… until they are threatened by the music hating Blue Meanies. It’s up to John, Paul, George and Ringo to set off on a magical adventure in their yellow submarine and bring music and harmony back to Pepperland.
