I believe that was just a misconception or something. From what I understand, Hidan is slowly dieing from a lack of nutrients, which apparently was revealed in the second fanbook, which was released December 9th 2009 so it's been a while since then, although Kakuzu assumed Hidan was still alive afterwards which happened in chapter 530 which was around March 2nd 2011, not sure how much time passed in Naruto time but I'd imagine at least a few months. Not sure how long someone can go without nutrients(Does dirt have nutrients for people?). Regardless, Hidan is probably in horrible shape right now. He'd probably be an actual skeleton by the time he gets dug up and rebuilt, then he wont have to wear that skeleton costume anymore, ha.

The Anime staff probably just wanted to bring back Hidan considering he was basically the only person not brought back with Edo Tensei. Plenty of people wanted Hidan back.
