Robert Zemeckis & Disney to produce 3D "Yellow Submarine" based on 1968 animation from obscure British pop group

Variety reports here that Robert Zemeckis and the Disney Company are seeking the rights to 16 songs by some obscure British band from the 60s. Who could possibly be interested in music that's over 40 years old?

Zemeckis plans to use the 3D motion capture technique he used in The Polar Express and his upcoming A Christmas Carol.

Can't these guys come up with anything original? What's next — big screen re-makes of dopey 1960s sit-coms like Bewitched or Get Smart?
