Cohen Directing Boy Scouts Vs Zombies
The horror comedy has risen again

Cohen Directing Boy Scouts Vs Zombies

Given that the last time it had the buzz-o-meter needle fluctuating was 2010, we were beginning to wonder if horror comedy Boy Scouts Vs Zombies had slipped back into the murk of development hell to wait out the current undead trend. Paramount thought otherwise, however, as Tropic Thunder co-writer Etan Cohen is now attached to direct it.

As you might just be able to guess from the title, Boy Scouts finds a troop of bob-a-jobbers facing down a horde of flesh-craving types on a camping trip. They’ll need all their survival skills to avoid becoming the zombies’ latest meal, and to help save their small town.

Carrie Evans and Emi Mochizuki wrote the original script, which hit the 2010 Black List and attracted interest from Race To Witch Mountain director Andy Fickman. He’s still involved, but only as producer, and now Cohen will coordinate a new draft with Drop Dead Gorgeous writer Lona Williams.

Though there’s no sign yet of when Boy Scouts Vs Zombies will start filming, Cohen has been as in demand as ever recently, writing Revenge Of The Jocks and acting as one of the many keyboard thumpers who took a crack at making the Men In Black 3 script work. And given his close working relationship with Ben Stiller, you just know he’s helped out behind the scenes on the likes of Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted and Stiller’s latest project, The Incredible Mr Limpet.

The film, when it arrives, will be part of a world that also features Cockneys Vs Zombies and Strippers Vs Werewolves. We may be approaching Versus saturation point.
