Cast list announced for Robert Zemeckis’ Yellow Submarine remake

Comedian Peter Serafinowicz will provide the voice of Paul McCartney in Robert Zemeckis’ new version of The Beatles’ Yellow Submarine film.

Serafinowicz has performed as McCartney before, notably in ‘I’ll Kill’, his pastiche of the White Album song ‘I Will’, and impersonated each of The Beatles on the BBC’s The Peter Serafinowicz show.

He is perhaps best known for his appearances alongside Simon Pegg in Shaun Of The Dead and Spaced, and for voicing Darth Maul in Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace.

The other leading cast members in the Yellow Submarine remake are Dean Lennox Kelly, who played Kev Ball in the Channel 4 TV show Shameless, as John Lennon; Cary Elwes, who previously worked with Zemeckis on A Christmas Carol, as George Harrison; and Epic Movie’s Adam Campbell as Ringo Starr.

California-based Beatles tribute band The Fab Four will provide motion-captured performances of the musical sequences, though 16 of The Beatles’ original recordings will be used.

The film will be a computer-animated remake of the 1968 original, using performance capture and 3D technology. Disney hopes to release the film in time for the 2012 Olympic Games in London.
