Director Says Picture Is "All Ahead Full," Despite Actor's Recent Thought To The Contrary


It seems there is better news for director Robert Zemeckis who's been in the press quite a bit this week because of the 25th anniversary of "Back To the Future" (which seems never ending) which is hitting Blu-Ray today.

Just last week it sounded like there may have been some issues with Zemeckis' upcoming motion-capture remake of the animated Beatles film, "Yellow Submarine." Actor David Tennant revealed on theThe Paul O’Grady Show” that he had scored the role of “Queen of the Blue Meanies....a six foot tall blue creature,” which would essentially mean, one of the chief villains, but then he added, "I don’t think [that project is] happening any more. I think the film has gone away."

This came one week after Cary Elwes told MTV that the film was set to begin production in April. Elwes stars as George Harrison, Peter Serafinowicz plays Paul McCartney, Dean Lennox Kelly will assume the role of John Lennon, and Adam Campbell is playing Ringo Starr. Something amiss?

Perhaps not. While he didn't give any details, at a recent red carpet event for the "Back To The Future" Blu-Ray release Zemeckis himself told Moviefone the project was "all ahead full." We'll assume that's ship jargon for, "don't worry, the project is still a go" ("full steam ahead" still sounds better, frankly).

It seems there's no need for worry. So, we can assume an April 2011 shoot and then according to original reports, the film is scheduled for release sometime in 2012. As you were.
