You canâ€™t forget about the oft-rumoured â€œWho Framed Roger Rabbit?â€ sequel happening anytime before 2013, director Bob Zemeckis â€“ who, up till a couple of weeks ago was hinting of a possible second flight of said Bunny â€“ has inked a deal to direct a remake of Beatlesâ€™ classic â€œYellow Submarineâ€ for Disney.
It sounds like a pretty ridiculous ideaâ€¦ and maybe it isâ€¦ but it might just work.
â€œSubmarineâ€ was released in 1968. Itâ€™s now 2009. I believe itâ€™s old enough to warrant a remakeâ€¦. Especially if theyâ€™re going to get their hands on all the classic â€˜Beatlesâ€™ songs.
Variety says the studio has been quietly brokering a complicated rights deal that would give Zemeckis access to 16 original Beatles songs for a movie he will direct in the performance-capture 3-D digital production format he employed for â€œA Christmas Carol.â€
Disney donâ€™t want to let this one sit and get itself together eitherâ€¦ theyâ€™re hoping to have it ready in time for the 2012 Summer Olympics, which begins July 27 in London.
The storyline of the original took place in Pepperland, an undersea paradise protected by Sgt. Pepperâ€™s Lonely Hearts Club Band. When the band is captured by the music-hating Blue Meanies, a soldier is sent to Liverpool to fetch the Fab Four, who hop in the submarine and save the day.
(But back to â€œRoger Rabbit 2â€, I wonder if Zemeckisâ€™s deal at Disney also includes that!? Is it possible they agreed to greenlight that, if he jumped aboard this?)
