'Paul is Undead' to tell history of fab four as zombies
The Beatles are to be reborn as the undead in a new film adaptation of a graphic novel.
The movie – entitled Paul Is Undead: The British Zombie Invasion – will show the band as zombies, after Doubles Features producers Michael Shamberg and Stacey Sher brought the screen rights for Alan Goldsher‘s illustrated novel.
The books sees an undead John Lennon killing a reanimated Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr. The group travel the world performing gigs, before facing off against zombie hunter Mick Jagger and Yoko Ono, who’s a ninja.
It follows in the footsteps in such ‘zombification’ fiction as Pride and Prejudice And Zombies – which is being made into a feature film with Natalie Portman – and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.
“I am a huge Beatles fan like the rest of the world and Alan‘s mash-up, which really showcases his love of music history and his appreciation of the zombie world, is a fun, funny read,” said Sher.
“The illustrations are fantastic, and how can you not love a book where Jesus agrees with Zombie John Lennon, that The Beatles are in fact bigger than him.”
There is currently no word when production will begin.
