'Boy Scouts vs. Zombies' Will Now Be Directed by Christopher Landon

Boy Scouts vs. Zombies

Over three years ago, we learned that Race to Witch Mountain director Andy Fickman was going to take on a horror comedy called Boy Scouts vs. Zombies. Though the concept, which is obvious from the title, sounded great, having Fickman directing with a script from College Road Trip writers Carrie Evans & Emi Mochizuki sounded like a disaster. But now Deadline reports Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones director Christopher Landon will now direct the film, and he'll be making a pass on the script himself, following a new rewrite from Lona Williams (Drop Dead Gorgeous) and Etan Cohen (Tropic Thunder).

The script made the Black List awhile back, so maybe it's better than Evans & Mochizuki's previous work. And with rewrites from the aforementioned scribes, it's likely only gotten better. As for Landon's skill on the page, he wrote Paranormal Activity 3 and Paranormal Activity 4, and while the third one had some great elements, the fourth film really fell apart. But hopefully he can do something fun with this project for a crazy R-rated horror comedy. Something along the lines of the short film The Legend of Beaver Dam maybe.
