Joey Morgan to star alongside Tye Sheridan in Scouts vs. Zombies

Last week we shared with you the news that MUD star Tye Sheridan (pictured) had landed the leading role in Paramount's horror comedy SCOUTS VS. ZOMBIES, which will be directed by PARANORMAL ACTIVITY: THE MARKED ONE's Christopher Landon. Now, word is coming in via Variety that newcomer Joseph Morgan has been given the nod to take on one of the lead roles opposite Sheridan. SCOUTS VS. ZOMBIES will mark Morgan's first major acting credit—that's one hell of a way to start a career, bashing in the skulls of the undead and all!

Here's what we know about the story:

The story centers on three high school Boy Scouts who must use their skills to battle vicious zombies after their small town faces a zombie outbreak.

Sheridan will play the budding honors student who is handsome and athletic but doesn't know it yet, still lacking the confidence needed to talk to girls he likes.

Todd Garner, Andy Fickman, Betsy Sullenger and Bryan Brucks are producing the project, which is scheduled to begin shooting in May.
