Arnold Schwarzenegger's son Patrick joins horror comedy Scouts vs Zombies

04.23.2014

Arnold Schwarzenegger will be battling the undead in the upcoming MAGGIE, and it looks like his son also wants to get in on some zombie action. Deadline has learned Patrick Schwarzenegger has been cast in SCOUTS VS ZOMBIES as a "popular high school quarterback who is a rival to the boy scout troop." The horror comedy about "three high school Boy Scouts who must use their skills to battle vicious zombies after their small town faces a zombie outbreak" will be directed by Christopher Landon (PARANORMAL ACTIVITY: THE MARKED ONES), and also stars Tye Sheridan (MUD), Logan Miller (THE BLING RING) and David Koechner (ANCHORMAN).

Patrick Schwarzenegger hasn't appeared in too many films, but he did have small roles in THE BENCHWARMERS, STUCK IN LOVE and GROWN UPS 2, and also has a part in Kevin Connolly's new film DEAR ELEANOR. While part of me feels like this stinks of stunt casting you'd expect from a shitty made-for-TV movie you'd find on Syfy or a cheesy direct-to-DVD horror movie, I also think SCOUTS VS ZOMBIES could be a fun little flick. Who doesn't want to see a bunch of Boy Scouts being terrorized by zombies, especially if they also have to deal with Arnold Schwarzenegger's son?

Filming for SCOUTS VS ZOMBIES is set to begin on May 8th, and Arnold Schwarzenegger's MAGGIE will likely hit theaters sometime this year.

Like father, like son...

The movie sounds like a fun concept

Done right, it could be another TUCKER AND DALE VS. EVIL. As for Patrick Schwarzenegger, I'll take a wait-and-see attitude, It's cool that he's starting as a villain/bully character. Who knows? He might actually be a good actor.

He really needs to buff up but I don't want to see him competing in the freakshow that bodybuilding has become. Arnold was winning competitions when he was younger I think.
He won't be the same without the accent.........

You think he needs to buff up more? He's not his dad, he looks perfectly buff to me. Too much is too much.

Why does he "really need to buff up?"

Because as Arnold's son the comparisons are invariably going to come up.

@Glinda

I think he could do with a bit more muscle ala plenty of male actors.

I hear ya but I think it's great he's his own man and obviously isn't worried about the comparisons to his dad. I'm much too old for him to say this but if I were younger I'd say that makes him all the hotter. ;) He's perfect for this role he's playing here.

I'm not really sure why but I'm actually pretty intrigued by this movie. I'm imagining zombies in an '80s-style boys adventure movie. And to his credit, Arnold's son at least looks like the kind of jock asshole who could make for a good nemesis.

Like father, like son? Hehe. Your father is way buffer, Patrick. He's numero uno. You're numero deux. Still, the premise of the movie sounds like silly fun.
