Peter Serafinowicz tackles Paul McCartney

Comedian to play Macca in Yellow Submarine remake

Cult British comedian Peter Serafinowicz has been cast as Paul McCartney in Robert Zemickis' cartoon musical Yellow Submarine .

Zemeckis ( A Christmas Carol ) is planning to utilise 3D technology to bring the remake to life for a 2012 release.

Voicing the remaining Beatles are Dean Lennox Kelly ( Shameless ) as John Lennon, Cary Elwes ( The Princess Bride ) as George Harrison and Adam Campbell ( Epic Movie ) as Ringo Starr.

Thankfully these guys will not be asked to sing - tribute band Fab 4 are doing the honours.

For those who don't remember, the story is about the Beatles handling the threat of harmony hating Blue Meanies, as they terrorise the peace in Pepperland.

So will Serafinowicz give the right impression? Let us know what you think...
