Etan Cohen is making a name for himself in Hollywood. Right now he’s known as the writer of Men in Black III, but soon he will be the director of Boy Scouts vs. Zombies. They must have added that chapter to the handbook after I left.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Cohen is in the final negotiations to make his debut as a director. Paramount picked up the title from the 2010 Black List with Andy Fickman and Betsy Sullenger from Oops Doughnuts Productions along with Broken Road Prod. and Brucks Entertainment. The script was written by Carrie Evans and Emi Mochizuki.
The story is centered around a troop of Boy Scouts that have to save a group of girl scouts when a zombie hoard tries the ruin all the fun of their camping trip. Cohan will be supervising as Lona Williams works on a new draft of the script. In the past he’s worked with Ben Stiller on multiple titles like Tropic Thunder, Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa, and the upcoming remake of The Incredible Mr. Limpet.
