The quirky new movie is based on Alan Goldsher's graphic novel and will be produced by filmmakers behind 'Pulp Fiction'.
The Beatles are to be portrayed as the undead in a quirky new movie. The producers behind "Pulp Fiction" have bought the film rights to Alan Goldsher's graphic novel "Paul Is Undead: The British Zombie Invasion" and now plan to turn it into an oddball new movie.
In Goldsher's tale, a zombie John Lennon murders the other three Beatles, who return as members of the undead and prey on Fab Four fans. Producer Stacey Sher tells Spinner.com, "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."
Another film about The Beatles is also currently being planned by Liam Gallagher. The Oasis frontman is going to reveal the movie project at Cannes Film Festival.
