Cary Elwes (Saw 3D) is going to be voicing the role of George Harrison next year in a 3D motion captured reinvention of that old cartoon, which some yield as a classlic, Yellow Submarine. Robert Zemeckis is on directorial duties and besides Elwes, Paul McCartney will be voiced by Peter Serafinowicz (the voice of Darth Maul), Ringo will be voiced by Adam Campbell and John Lennon will get the vocal treatment by Dean Lennox Kelly (Faq About Time Travel). The movie will be a mo-cap event so the actors will not only be voicing their roles, they will also be performing them as well. Personally I never saw the original flick, and truth be told I have zero interest in going to see this. While I like the Beatles music, I wouldn’t class myself as a fan and I wonder, in particular, how many Beatles fans will look upon »

If you missed Matt Smith's introduction in Doctor Who, or any of the 13 episode run, the fifth series of New Who is being shown again starting tonight, at 7:00pm on BBC3 with The Eleventh Hour, followed by the Confidential shows you may have skipped the first time around. Strangely, this trip seems to manage identical broadcast times at least two weeks in a row, so you should be able to catch it from the first frames every Friday.
The It Crowd finale of its fourth season airs tonight at 10:00pm on Channel 4 with Reynholm v Reynholm. This latest series was a sweet and sour assortment for our reviewers and this final show may be the deciding factor for its future. It involves another court case, »

Looks like the cast is coming together for Robert Zemeckis' next project, which of course, will be yet another 3-D performance capture film along the lines of Beowulf and A Christmas Carol. It was announced last summer  that Zemeckis would be remaking the classic animated Beatles film Yellow Submarine, and now he has four actors in mind to play the Fab Four on screen. According to THR's Heat Vision Blog , the following actors are currently in negotiations to play John Lennon, George Harrison, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr: Dean Lennox Kelly (Frequently Asked Questions About Time Travel), Cary Elwes (The Princess Bride, Saw), Peter Serafinowicz (Couples Retreat, The Peter Serafinowicz Show), and Adam Campbell (Epic Movie, Harper's Island). They don't really look like any of The Beatles, but that doesn't matter since their movements will simply be mapped to 3-D representations of the characters. It also doesn't matter »
Anyone who knows comedian Peter Serafinowicz' work knows he can do a killer Paul McCartney impression. And now he'll get the chance to show the world - though the medium of performance capture, at least - in Robert Zemeckis' remake of cartoon Beatles musical Yellow Submarine. Zemeckis has plumped for a surprisingly eclectic bunch of performers to play the band members in his new film - Dean Lennox Kelly, of Shameless and (more recently) Frequently Asked Questions About Time Travel, is John Lennon, Cary Elwes - who worked on Christmas Carol with the director - is George Harrison and Epic Movie's Adam Campbell is Ringo Starr. But in an odd twist, they won't be needed for the musical numbers - that duty will fall to tribute band Fab 4, who will be playing along to actual Beatles tracks. Sounds like overkill, if you ask us. Still, we're delighted »
