'Boy Scouts Vs. Zombies': Literal Titled Movies Attack Hollywood
It's still a little early for April Fools' jokes, so this one must be true. THR reports that Etan Cohen, the screenwriter behind "Idiocracy" and "Men In Black 3," will make his directorial debut with "Boy Scouts vs. Zombies," which -- spoiler? -- is about boy scouts fighting zombies.
"Boy Scouts vs. Zombies" is the latest on a growing list of literal-titled movies. Just last week, Deadline.com passed along word of "Cowboy Ninja Viking," a graphic novel adaptation about a government agent forged to have the attributes of a cowboy, ninja and viking. (Not to be confused with the summer dud, "Cowboys vs. Aliens.")
Going deeper, there's also "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter," "The Cabin in the Woods," and -- as Movieline.com points out -- something called "Strippers vs. Werewolves." All of which raise the obvious question: What hath "Snakes on a Plane" wrought?
