Help! They want braaaainsss! Is a zombie Beatles movie on the way?

05.10.2010

Two things I will never grow tired of:

1. The Beatles

2. Zombies

Imagine my brain exploding when I find out that these two worlds have collided in the form of a graphic novel from Alan Goldsher called "Paul is Undead". It's the retelling of the history of The Beatles, except for a few minor details.

John Lennon is a zombie guitarist in Liverpool who decides to eat the flesh of Paul McCartney thereby reanimating him, then he does the same with George Harrison and Ringo Starr. The group creates a sensation with their music as well as their mayhem traveling across the world munching on the brains of adoring fans. In a crazy turn of events they are being tracked down by England's greatest zombie hunter Mick Jagger and at some point battle eighth level ninja Yoko Ono.

How would you like to see all of this on the big screen? Double Feature partners Michael Shamberg and Stacey Sher are optioning the graphic novel. Sher and Shamberg have produced several properties like PULP FICTION, GARDEN STATE, and REALITY BITES. Sher said this on the novel, "I am a huge Beatle's 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. 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. We will be going out to studios, financiers, and talent soon."

How does this sound to all of you? Tacky, stupid, awesome? Honestly, I'd like to pick up the graphic novel to see how the story plays out, but for now, it sounds pretty cool.

As fun an idea as it might be, I doubt the various parties involved would allow this film to be made. Yoko owns Lennon's name and image and I doubt she'd give it the official thumbs up. Would it still work without using names and close likenesses? Maybe, but they'd have to be clever/careful about it.

Hey I'm a sucker for originality and this piece of work is really original if you wanna' call it that. It's stupid, yes, but it also has Awesome painted all over it.

"How does this sound to all of you? Tacky, stupid, awesome?"

How about "all of the above"?

I'll take my zombies anyway I can get them, and if they're currently being optioned into other novels/genres by proper studios with genuine a-list cast members...well I'll take that happily too.

Zombies are literally invading every aspect of the media world at the moment, novels, music, films...IT'S AWESOME

Doubt it'll happen. If it's a live version it would be cool done in the fashion of Roman Polanski's 1960's comedy/horror romp-"The Fearless Vampire Killers"(1967) w/ Sharon Tate.

Elanor Rigby, died in a church while a zombie was eating her brains. Who can explain? All the undead people, where do they all come from?

Aaaaaheeey-men to this.

"She came in through the boarded window,
Infected by an undead goon.
And now she sucks out brains and wanders
Like a drunk, stumbling out a s'loon."

I Wanna Hold Your (chewed off) Hand.

I too share an undying love (bad pun) for all things Zombie and Beatle...but this is a painful disgrace to both camps.
