London: The Beatles will soon be making it to the silver screen as zombies - the movie adaptation of the book "Paul Is Undead" will see the Fab Four being cast as flesh-eaters.

According to leading film blog Deadline, film Company Double Feature - whose bosses have produced hits like Pulp Fiction and Erin Brockovich - has bagged the rights to the book by author Alan Goldsher.

The book portrays John Lennon as a zombie who kills his bandmate Paul McCartney and the rest of the group come back as the undead.

They kill and eat the brains of fans even as they try to evade their nemesis, zombie killer Mick Jagger.

"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," the Mirror quoted Stacey Sher of Double Feature, as saying.

She added: "How can you not love a book where Jesus agrees with zombie John Lennon, that the Beatles are in fact bigger than him?"
