Serafinowicz to play McCartney in Yellow Submarine remake

The British comedian only got to utter a few lines in the Star Wars prequels, but his Hollywood career has since taken off, with roles in Run Fatboy Run and Couples Retreat.

And now Liverpool-native Serafinowicz has been recruited to Robert Zemeckis’ forthcoming animated remake of the 1968 film.

John Lennon will be played by Dean Lennox Kelly, George Harrison by Cary Elwes and Ringo Starr by Adam Campbell.

The soundtrack will be performed by Beatles tribute band The Fab Four.
