Boy Scouts vs Zombies


If you need any sort of indication that the zombie craze that has taken over our popular culture in the last decade or so has hit its peak and is now getting ready to wane, you probably need look no further than the ludicrously titled upcoming film from Paramount Pictures, Boy Scouts vs. Zombies. Yes, as you’re likely imagining, this really is a movie that’s going to pit flesh-eating fiends against young boys in little shorts and neckerchiefs, and it really is on its way to being made. Don’t roll your eyes too much yet though, because there is some indication that there might be a few good ideas getting kicked around here. What started out as simply a pitch for a movie that never ended up getting made has since become a Black List script written by Carrie Evans and Emi Mochizuki, so all indications are that the execution of a movie that pits hordes of rotting creatures against knot-tying and campfire-building skills has so far been better than its conception. So much so that Deadline is reporting the movie is moving forward once again, and has found a new director.


Boy Scouts vs Zombies

It’s unclear what’s so dramatic about the project titled Boy Scouts vs Zombies. We had to deal with the undead every year at summer camp (they ate all mustard on hot dog day and hogged the archery range). Plus, on top of the rotting campers that wanted to eat your brains, there was always a blood-thirsty killer snipe on the loose. He’s probably still out there. Seriously. Go find him. Director Andy Fickman has been tapped to helm the project that has only revealed its great, high concept name so far. Fickman, in case you don’t recognize the name, is the man behind She’s The Man and the director responsible for emasculating The Rock in The Game Plan and Race to Witch Mountain. His previous work is all pretty light fare, so it might be interesting to see what Fickman plans to do with the inherent gore of zombies. Unless he makes it light and family friendly. [Collider]
