Etan Cohen, one of the town’s hottest comedy scribes, is in negotiations to make his directorial debut on Paramount’s horror-comedy Boy Scouts vs. Zombies.
With an “it’s all in the title” moniker, Boy Scouts 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 was written by Carrie Evans and Emi Mochizuki and made the 2010 Black List of Hollywood’s most-liked screenplays. Paramount picked it up the same year. |THR|
Be honest, you’re just playing shitty-idea Mad Libs now, right? Pride and Predator and Sea Monsters and Zombies and Queefs and Angels and Demons and Vampires and (noun).
Meanwhile, Marc Forster, whom I remind you has directed multiple Oscar-nominated films, has signed on to direct… ugh… Cowboy Ninja Viking for Universal, adapted by Zombieland writers Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese from the comic of the same name. It’s pretty much exactly like it sounds, because… how could it not be? It’s called “Cowboy Ninja Viking.” I don’t know what idiot’s greenlighting these, but I imagine he’s wearing a Charlie Sheen “WINNING” t-shirt and asking for high fives in a Borat voice when he does it.
