Novelist Alan Goldsher's very popular zombie book 'Paul is Undead' has been picked up by Sham Productions. The enjoyable Fab Four walking dead story will be heading to the big screen. 'Paul Is Undead: The British Zombie Invasion', which parallels the real-world career of The Beatles with a subtle twist - they're all zombies, will see Sham prez Barry M. Greenberg co-produce with author Goldsher. It'll hopefully be a fresh take on the world of the undead which you'd think would be a tough thing to achieve nowadays. But you have to admit it's the sub-genre that keeps on giving!
"'Paul Is Undead' follows the story of the zombified Fab Four, from their early days shuffling through the foul sewers of Liverpool, to the infamous Shea Stadium riot that almost destroyed New York, to the breakup that turned Abbey Road Studios into rubble."
Of his screenplay, Goldsher says, "It's loyal to the book's oral history vibe. The film will be done mocumentary-style; I envision a big budget Behind The Music. You've got Mick Jagger as a zombie hunter, you've got Ringo Starr as a Ninja, and you've got John Lennon eating all the brains you can shake a guitar at, so I figure some lucky director will have a blast with this."
