In not entirely unexpected news, The Hollywood Reporter states that The Walt Disney Studios has shut down production on director Robert Zemeckis’ proposed motion-capture remake of The Beatles’ Yellow Submarine, following the disastrous box-office figures for Mars Needs Moms, which he produced. The “creepy” look of mo-cap has also been cited, although HR suggests Zemeckis may take the project to another studio or focus on a new live-action film. Disney and Zemeckis were said to be teaming for another Roger Rabbit, too, but the status of that picture is now very much unclear given their newly rocky relationship.
