A comic book adaptation of the 1968 animated film The Beatles: Yellow Submarine is in development from cartoonist Bill Morrison and UK publisher Titan Comics, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The film was inspired by the music and the lives of the Beatles, and the planned 2018 release of the comic book adaptation coincides with the 50th anniversary of the movie.
"We’re thrilled to be publishing The Beatles: Yellow Submarine for the 50th anniversary of this fantastic movie," said Titan publishing diector Chris Teather. "We can’t wait for Beatles fans to experience this official adaptation."
Morrison is best known as the co-founder of Bongo Comics with Simpsons creator Matt Groening. The cartoonist was recently hired as Mad Magazine's new Executive Editor.
