No, We Do Not All Live In A Yellow Submarine.

Just when you begin to think that the news is nothing but one catastrophic disaster after another, and the world's going to hell in a handbasket, a story like this reminds you that there's still hope for the human race. At least for the segment that's not addicted to soul-deadening, creepy motion capture flops:

The Walt Disney Co. has deep-sixed Mars Needs Moms producer Robert Zemeckis' planned next project for the studio, the high-profile remake of the classic Beatles film Yellow Submarine, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter.

...sources say the disastrous $6.9 million opening for the $150 million-budgeted Mars, produced by Zemeckis, guaranteed that Submarine would never set sail at Disney. The producer-director is now free to shop the project to another studio.

Ah, the sweet smell of freedom.

Now we just pray that no one else is stupid enough to pick it up. Perish the thought.
