The Beatles History Rewritten as Zombies

Alongside Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, it looks like The Beatles are the latest historical figures to get the horror treatment. It was announced today that Alan Goldsher has sold the film rights to his forthcoming zombie-Beatles novel, Paul is Undead: The British Zombie Invasion, due out this June from Gallery Books/Simon & Schuster. Deadline reports that the book re-imagines the history of The Beatles–with John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr re-cast as zombies. Written as oral history, 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. Seriously, this is AWESOME.
