Back in our younger days, scouting was all about bob-a-job week, activity badges and singing Ging Gang Goolie around camp fires. Now, however, it appears to be more about staying alive when zombies run amok.
The movie – which seems to want to bottle a similar blend of silly and terrifying as Edgar Wright's Shaun Of The Dead (2004) – finds three scouts, lifelong friends, who must team up with a tough cocktail waitress to try and save their town from a zombie invasion. Can these unlikely heroes make it through the undead apocalypse? They will certainly need all their scouting skills.
With Christopher Landon on writing and directing duty, the film features Tye Sheridan (Mud) alongside Logan Miller (I'm In The Band), Halston Sage (Neighbors), Sarah Dumont (Don Jon), Patrick Schwarzenegger (Stuck In Love) and David Koechner (Anchorman: The Legend Of Ron Burgundy).
Scout's Guide To The Zombie Apocalypse is due out in the US this October and should follow shortly after here in the UK.
