The Beatles = flesh-eating zombies? New film Paul is Undead: The British Zombie Invasion in the works

Zombies have been Nazis and punks; hell, zombies have even been Ned Flanders. And now a decaying version of The Beatles have reunited to not only hold your hand, but to eat it too in the forthcoming film, Paul is Undead: The British Zombie Invasion.

The movie is based on Alan Goldsher’s illustrated novel, Paul is Undead, which will be published June 22. In this gripping, comedy/horror-filled tome, John Lennon, a zombie since infancy, kills Paul, who proves to be a better friend and songwriter undead than alive. Joined by George and Ringo (who isn’t a zombie, but a ninja), they feast on the brains of fans, sweeping across the world in a zombie-rock pandemonium. In this alternate universe, Mick Jagger, who doesn’t actually have sympathy for ghouls, is the pride of England in terms of zombie hunting and gives the four a real reason to run. (Now, imagine A Hard Day’s Night, with John and Paul — arms dangling, jaws detaching — shuffling away from Mick Jagger, leading that iconic stampede of screaming girls.) Check out Goldsher’s website for more plot details.

Double Feature, which produced Pulp Fiction and Erin Brockovich, purchased the rights to Goldsher’s book. As of now, the project is still in need of funding, a cast, and more brains.

If this music-zombie mash-up trend continues, do you think the undead might prove to like chillwave?
