Film Rights Sold to Alan Goldsher’s Upcoming Novel, Paul Is Undead

9781439177921.jpgAlan Goldsher has sold the film rights to his forthcoming zombie-Beatles novel, Paul is Undead: The British Zombie invasion, due out in June by Gallery Books/Simon & Schuster.

The book, which got a ton of press when it was announced last year after people realized Pride and Prejudice and Zombies was awesome, is an oral history of the undead Fab Four, who are trying to, ahem, “escape eternal death at the hands of England’s greatest zombie hunter, Mick Jagger.”

Double Feature Films, the company run by the producers of Pulp Fiction and Erin Brockovich, bought the rights. Earlier this year, Goldsher gave GalleyCat some publishing predictions.
