The Beatles as Zombies on the Silver Screen -- This Is Really Happening

According to one of our favorite British music blogs, NME, Michael Shamberg and Stacey Sher have bought the rights to a graphic novel, titled Paul is Undead: The British Zombie Invasion. The book depicts the Beatles as zombies.

The plot line roughly revolves around John Lennon killing the other three of his former band mates, which results in an undead tour fraught with attacks from zombie hunter Mick Jagger and ninja Yoko Ono.

Producer Stacey Sher went on to say that, "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."

Production hasn't begun yet, so don't hold your breath for too long. In the meantime, be wary of Mick Jagger and Yoko Ono.
