Beatles' Yellow Submarine re-make in the works

According to EMI, a remake of the Beatles' 1968 animated "Yellow Submarine" is planned for 2012.

From the press release:
The Beatles' seminal 1968 animated film 'Yellow Submarine' is to be re-made by Back To the Future director Robert Zemeckis, Variety reports.

Just as the original was a visionary work, Zemeckis hopes that his revolutionary performance-capture 3d techniques (used in his recent Polar Express and Beowulf movies) will also make the new version similarly ahead of its time.

Release date is being tentatively pencilled in for Summer 2012 to coincide with the London Olympics.
