Yellow Submarine Cancelled

ON

Yellow Submarine, the proposed performance capture remake of the 1968 animated Beatles film, will not be moving forward at Disney as was originally planned.

Set for development at ImageMovers Digital, the project was to have been directed by Robert Zemeckis with a cast announced last year.

Though some online speculation has already suggested that the decision relates directly to this past weekend’s under-performance of the Zemeckis-produced Mars Needs Moms, sources tell ComingSoon.net that Disney’s decision regarding Yellow Submarine has been a long time coming and that the official cancellation of the project was actually made quietly several months ago.

Even though Disney is no longer involved with the film, it has yet to be confirmed whether Zemeckis may pursue the project at another studio.
