Meet The (New) Beatles! Plus Favreau Goes Clone?

I'm sure some are still recovering from yesterday's Spider-Man news. Chin up-we're getting a new one.

As for the rest of the brief news...Some might remember a few months back Disney and director Robert Zemeckis announced plans for a 3D motion capture remake of Yellow Submarine. Well The Hollywood Reporter's Heatvision blog has revealed who will be playing the Fab Four. As follows-Dean Lennox Kelly (who is on the BBC Robin Hood series) is John; Peter Serafinowicz (whose credits include Shaun of the Dead and the voice of Darth Maul in The Phantom Menace) is Paul; Cary Elwes (who recently worked with Zemeckis on A Christmas Carol and Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson's upcoming TinTin film) is George and Adam Campbell (whose credits mostly seem to be films like Epic Movie and Date Movie) is Ringo.

The other news brief comes from The Force.net which is reporting that actor-director Jon Favreau will be providing a voice for an upcoming episode of The Clone Wars. The news was reported via Favreau's Twitter. For more info-http://www.theforce.net/latestnews/story/Jon_Favreau_In_The_Clone_Wars_128725.asp
