‘Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse’ Opening In Theaters Today

Happy Halloween! This October has already seen a new addition to the Paranormal Activity series (The Ghost Dimension), the return of AMC’s The Walking Dead and its spinoff series Fear The Walking Dead, and the comeback of R.L. Stine’s classic scary-tale series Goosebumps with Jack Black (Shallow Hal, School of Rock) at the helm. This week, and just in time for Halloween weekend, we get another Zombified movie experience from director Christopher Landon (Paranormal Activity, Burning Palms) in the form of Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse. Bringing back the fun-zombie feel of Zombieland (2009), this one follows three scouts who must use their experiences to ban together and save their hometown from a zombie outbreak. Actors Tye Sheridan (The Tree of Life, Mud), Logan Miller (I’m In The Band, +1), and newcomer Joey Morgan star in the lead roles, with Sarah Dumont (Don Jon, Playing It Cool), David Koechner (Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby), and Cloris Leachman (Young Frankenstein, Beerfest) in the supporting cast. Director Landon co-wrote the screenplay with Lona Williams (Drop Dead Gorgeous, Shark Tale), Carrie Lee Wilson (Teamo Supremo, College Road Trip), and Emi Mochizuki (College Road Trip). Also still playing in theaters for your Halloween needs are Goosebumps and Crimson Peak. Enjoy the Halloween weekend, and be safe!

Jay Chandrasekhar Working On New Cheech & Chong Script

Fans of Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong have been waiting patiently the last few years to see if a movie reunion featuring everybody’s favorite stoners would actually happen. Now it seems that some progress is actually happening behind the scenes, at least according to Tommy Chong, who recently reported that Beerfest and Super Troopers director Jay Chandrasekhar is writing the script for the possible reunion flick. There has not been any word yet as to whether or not Chandrasekhar will be directing, but the director has not released any recent news about his possible Weedfest movie, or Super Troopers 2, so I can’t really imagine him not directing, but we’ll see what happens with that. According to Chong, the script for the Cheech and Chong reunion will feature plenty of stoner laughs and a festival called Burning Joint. The film may also be made as a sequel to the toking duo’s stoner classic, Up In Smoke, but there is no official word on that yet. Stay tuned for more news.
