It’s Official: The Beatles Zombie Movie Is Happening

Pin it

There are two things we’ll never tire of: the Beatles and zombies. Thankfully, someone is finally going to combine the two; Double Feature Productions has bought the screen rights to Alan Goldsher’s illustrated novel Paul is Undead: The British Zombie Invasion. According to Deadline, the book:

"Details how Lennon, a zombie guitarist in Liverpool, kills and reanimates McCartney, then does the same with Harrison and Starr. They create hits and bloody mayhem across the world, pursued by England’s greatest zombie hunter, Mick Jagger. They also engage in a battle with Eighth Level Ninja Lord Yoko Ono, and snack on the brains of swooning fans."

I love the Beatles and George Romero as much as the next guy, but I’m not sure how necessary this is. Shaun of the Dead and Zombieland were already funny and very meta; is there a way Undead can pull this off, too? Plus, there’s also already a band out there called the Zombeatles

But there is one thing about Undead I’m looking forward to: the inevitable soundtrack, containing such classics as: "Hey, Zombie," "Got to Bite You Into My Life," and "Sgt. Pepper’s Delicious Hearts Zombie Band"
