A planned remake of Beatles movie Yellow Submarine has been scrapped by film bosses following numerous delays and setbacks.

Back to the Future director Robert Zemeckis set the project up and hired Cary Elwes, Dean Lennox Kelly, Peter Serafinowicz and Adam Campbell to play the Fab Four in a remake of the 1968 animated film.

The production was due to feature 16 of the band's songs and use advanced motion-capture technology to re-create the fantasy world.

But the film is said to have suffered budget troubles, while a meeting with Beatles representatives was pushed back numerous times and a planned conference in December (10) was cancelled and never rescheduled, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

The Kooks Luke Pritchard Beatles Yellow Submarine MTV

The Kooks frontman Luke Pritchard was almost arrested by police in Germany after dancing to the Beatles classic hit Yellow Submarine in a nightclub.
The singer and fellow bandmates were in Munich earlier this year (07) when he requested the Beatles track in one of the city's venues.
But Pritchard was almost arrested by police after trying to jump on stage with the club's band.
He tells MTV, "I was really drunk and I asked them (the band) to go and play Yellow Submarine and they played it but I tried to get on stage to play with them.
"I was going to sing it and they went nuts, this guy grabbed me - one of the big Bavarian dudes in the full, little hat and trousers!
"I sat back down but they phoned up the police and told them we were doing drugs in the building. Luckily we weren't so they didn't arrest us. Quite a funny night actually. We left kind of screaming and shouting."
