Disney has reportedly dropped plans for a motion-capture remake of The Beatles' classic Yellow Submarine.

Back to the Future director Robert Zemeckis was to helm the project, which would have followed up his 2011 3D sci-fi film Mars Needs Moms.

Speaking to Deadline, studio insiders denied that the decision to pull the plug was based on takings for the comedy, which Zemeckis co-produced.

Yellow Submarine, under discussion since 2009, was intended to be made in time to open at the London 2012 Olympics.
