'The Yellow Submarine' to start shooting in April 2011

Cary Elwes Says Robert Zemeckis' 3D Mo-Cap 'The Yellow Submarine' Will Start Shooting In April 2011

With casting announced way back in January of this year, news quickly grew quiet around Robert Zemeckis' 3D motion-capture adaptation of the Beatles' "The Yellow Submarine." And with the director eyeing a handful of projects in the past months including "Superman: Man Of Steel," "Timeless" and "Dark Life," not to mention the closing of his ImageMovers studio the film seemed to be dead. But looks can be deceiving.

Speaking to MTV at the New York Comic Con, Cary Elwes confirmed the the project is still very much alive and planning to go in front of cameras in April of next year. While the actor has signed a waiver preventing him from spilling too many details about the film, he does speak a bit about the mo-cap experience saying, "It's more than a voice. We actually have to perform the roles," he said. "If you know much about motion-capture, it's not just voice-over work. You really have to perform the role." Thanks Cary, we knew that already.

Elwes is set to play George Harrison and will be joined by lesser known British actors like Dean Lennox Kelly (who will play John Lennon), Peter Serafinowicz (who will play McCartney and had a pretty amusing turn in the otherwise mirthless "Couple's Retreat") and Adam Campbell (as the perennially-jovial Ringo Starr). Why the unknowns? Firstly, they're cheap for a film that is going to cost a bundle thanks to licensing the Beatles catalog alone, and with mo-cap, who really cares who's behind the digital makeup?

"John was the best. I loved John. He was fine singer, a fine musician and he was a fine friend." -Ringo
β€œHe's (Ringo) every bloody bit as warm, unassuming, funny, and kind as he seems. He was quite simply the heart of the Beatles.” – John
