Robert Zemeckis is close to finding his Fab Four.
Actors Cary Elwes, Dean Lennox Kelly, Peter Serafinowicz and Adam Campbell are in talks to play the members of The Beatles in Zemeckis’ 3D, CGI, motion-capture remake of the 1968 animated feature Yellow Submarine, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Zemeckis wrote the screeplay for the film, and is producing along with his Imagemovers Digital partners Jack Rapke and Steve Starkey.
The movie will use original Beatles music, so the actors will not be performing new versions of any of their music. The report has Elwes playing George Harrison, Kelly as John Lennon, Serafinowicz as Paul McCartney and Campbell as Ringo Starr.
