Variety reports that Walt Disney Pictures is negotiating a deal for the rights allowing the studio and producer/director Robert Zemeckis use of 16 Beatles songs including “All Together Now,” “Baby You’re a Rich Man,” “All You Need Is Love,” “When I’m 64,” “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds” and “Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band” and of course, the title tune, "Yellow Submarine" for a new remake. They are looking at a 2012 release date.
Zemeckis will direct the performance-capture 3-D digital production format he utilized for “A Christmas Carol” starring Jim Carrey opening in November.
