Tye Sheridan has been cast in the lead role in Paramount Pictures upcoming zombie film Scouts Vs. Zombies. He co-starred alongside Matthew McConaughey in the indie drama Mud. The kid is an amazing young actor, who is sure to be an amazing performance.
The movie is a horror comedy that is horror comedy set to be directed by Christopher Landon. The story centers on three high school Boy Scouts who must use their skills to battle vicious zombies after their small town faces a zombie outbreak. According to THR Sheridan "will play the budding honors student who is handsome and athletic but doesn't know it yet, still lacking the confidence needed to talk to girls he likes."
We've been hearing about this project over the last year, and it's nice to see that the project is making progress. I love this concept and I think it will make for a really fun movie.
