‘Boy Scouts Vs. Zombies’ Movie Gets a Director
The acclaimed horror/comedy script Boy Scouts Vs. Zombies has been gathering dust since it made it onto the Black List back in 2010. However the project has now gained a director in the form of Etan Cohen, a co-writer of the hit comedy Tropic Thunder, so we shouldn’t be waiting too long before it hits the cinema.
The movie will follow a group of boy scouts whose campsite is invaded by a horde of zombies, leaving them no option but to use their outdoor skills to both defend themselves and rescue a group of girl scouts.
The script which was originally written by Carrie Evans and Emi Mochizuki will be reworked by Lona Williams (Drop Dead Gorgeous) under the watchful eye of Etan Cohen (pictured left,) who will make his directorial debut on this project.
I liked Tropic Thunder so knowing that Cohen is supervising a rewrite of the script is a good sign. And I normally get turned off whenever I see “vs Zombies” in a movie title (too many flashbacks of low budget horror films,) but judging by the talent involved in this, it will be quality and sounds like fun.
We’ll keep you updated on any further developments.
