Tropic Thunder co-writer Etan Cohen to direct Boy Scouts vs Zombies

Mar. 7, 2012by: Alejandro Stepenberg

Boy Scouts

Zombies

 

While simpler doesn't always equal better (COWBOYS VS ALIENS didn't track too well as a title), Etan Cohen (MEN IN BLACK III) is going very simple indeed with the title of his directing debut: BOY SCOUTS VS ZOMBIES is exactly what it sounds like, as it "centers on a troop that must save a group of girl scouts from a pack of zombies with designs on spoiling a camping trip."

The script is by Carrie Evans and Emi Mochizuki and made the 2010 Black List (a list of the most-liked unproduced scripts in any given year), but will receive a Cohen-supervised rewrite from Lona Williams (DROP DEAD GORGEOUS).

If I was there though? I'd lie low and let the zombies eat all the boy/girl scouts they want, so long as they don't touch the cookies.  One decaying finger even brushes a Thin Mint and that zombie won't be getting their finger back.  It'll be like THE BOOK OF ELI all over again, except not blind.  Because even with being a badass and all, fighting blind against zombies seems like poor decision making to me.

I do have one request for Cohen - can the endangered girls look like this?

sounds funny. let's hope it's as good as Shaun of the Dead, but I know that's probably wishful thinking.

Seriously...

Enough with the Zombie flicks! What twilight and vampires did (vamp diaries, true blood, etc.) to that genre isnt nearly as bad as this Zombie movie overload! I mean how many times can they do the "zombie apocalypse" theme? I guess I'm also irritated because its flooding the video game industry as well. Oh well, I guess this is one of those "until it stops making money" scenerios and then its on to the next big thing. My prediction, remakes of the zombie flicks we're watching now!
