Cary Elwes, star of Robin Hood: Men in Control-Top Tights (because he’s put on a few pounds since ’87, you see. Haha, have some more ice cream soup, fatty.), has joined the cast of Robert Zemeckis’ upcoming 3D remake of Yellow Submarine. The who with the what now? From THR:
Cary Elwes, Dean Lennox Kelly, Peter Serafinowicz and Adam Campbell are in negotiations to portray the members of the band in “Yellow Submarine,” which the director is remaking for Disney.
The original 1968 animated movie was based on the music by the Beatles and featured a storyline wherein a soldier called Old Fred meets up with the Beatles and travels in a yellow submersible to Pepperland. Among the group’s encounters are the music-hating Blue Meanies [Na’avi?].
Zemeckis is making the movie using 3D performance-capture technology. [of course]
The Beatles tribute band the Fab Four will be motion-captured as the ensemble for the musical performance sequences.
And so the Robert Zemeckis’ motion-capture, condom-people experiment continues (I hear his nickname for his wife’s vagina is the ‘uncanny valley’). Anyway, a 3-D movie featuring Beatles music? 1966 is going to be so jealous.
