Walt Disney Co is to remake the zany 1960s Beatles movie “Yellow Submarine” in 3-D in a deal with the Apple Corp.
Disney Studios chairman Dick Cook said on Friday the new “Yellow Submarine” will be directed by Oscar-winning director Robert Zemeckis using the same motion-capture effects he employed in the family movie “Polar Express.”
It will incorporate the 16 Beatles songs and recordings from the original film, licensed from Sony/ATV Music Publishing and EMI Capitol Records.
Jeff Jones, CEO of Apple Corps, said the deal with Disney brings together “two of the best-loved creative entities in the world.”
(Clearly numerous deals are being tied up.)
