Raven-Symoné: "I Never Said I Wasn't Black"

Raven-Symoné:
The only thing Raven-Symoné dislikes more than being labeled is being misquoted. During a recent interview with Oprah Winfrey for Own's Where Are They Now?, the College Road Trip star said she was sick of "being labeled," particularly in regard to her sexual orientation and her race. "I'm an American," the actress told a shocked Winfrey. "I'm not an African American; I'm an American." "Oh, girl," Winfrey said. "Don't set up Twitter on fire...Oh, my lord. What did you just say?" The actress replied, "I mean, I don't know where my roots go to. I don't know how far back they go...I don't know what country in Africa I'm from, but I do...

Move Over, Demi Lovato! Raven-Symoné Dyes Her Hair Purple & Gray Before College Begins: "New Hair for a New Life"

Move Over, Demi Lovato! Raven-Symoné Dyes Her Hair Purple & Gray Before College Begins:
One more celeb and this purple-gray hair color combo is officially a trend. Raven-Symoné is the latest star to try the multicolored effect. The former Disney-darling ditched her dark shade in favor of a candy-colored hue on the heels of Demi Lovato, who went for a similar dye job last week. It seems that the College Road Trip star's vibrant new 'do is in preparation of her return to campus—this time as an actual student. Raven posted an Instagram picture of her new hair last week, writing, "My last Friday in La before I start my life as a #oncampus student! New hair for a new life! #hellyea." In another post of her new hair, the star described her "bomb color and cut" as a...

Young 'Mud' and 'Joe' Star Tye Sheridan Ready for 'Scouts vs. Zombies'

After starring in critically acclaimed indies like Mud with Matthew McConaughey and Joe with Nicolas Cage, young actor Tye Sheridan is getting a big studio movie of his own. THR reports the breakout star will take the lead role in Scouts vs. Zombies, the horror comedy taken over by Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones director Christopher Landon last fall. The film follows three high school Boy Scouts who must use their skills to fight off zombies after their small town begins getting ravaged by the undead. But there's also a great coming-of-age angle, so this isn't a weak version of Shaun of the Dead with some boy scouts. Sheridan's character is a budding honors student who is handsome and athletic but doesn't know it yet, as he is shy to talk to the girl he likes. Surely his bravery in facing zombies will help bring out his confidence. The original

'Boy Scouts vs. Zombies' Will Now Be Directed by Christopher Landon

Over three years ago, we learned that Race to Witch Mountain director Andy Fickman was going to take on a horror comedy called Boy Scouts vs. Zombies. Though the concept, which is obvious from the title, sounded great, having Fickman directing with a script from College Road Trip writers Carrie Evans & Emi Mochizuki sounded like a disaster. But now Deadline reports Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones director Christopher Landon will now direct the film, and he'll be making a pass on the script himself, following a new rewrite from Lona Williams (Drop Dead Gorgeous) and Etan Cohen (Tropic Thunder). The script made the Black List awhile back, so maybe it's better than Evans & Mochizuki's previous work. And with rewrites from the aforementioned scribes, it's likely only gotten better. As for Landon's skill on the page, he wrote Paranormal Activity 3 and Paranormal Activity 4, and while the third one had some great elements,

'MiB3' Writer Etan Cohen Set to Direct Ferrell & Hart in 'Get Hard'

After delivering scripts for high profile movies like Tropic Thunder and Men in Black 3, writer Etan Cohen is ready to make his directorial debut. Originally, Cohen was supposed to be at the helm of Boy Scouts vs. Zombies, a project from College Road Trip writers Carrie Evans and Emi Mochizuki that made the Black List in 2010. But now THR reports Cohen will be at the helm of Get Hard, a comedy that follows Will Ferrell (also producing with Adam McKay through their Gary Sanchez banner) as a rich, soft-handed investment bank manager who is sentenced to a maximum security prison for a crime he didn’t commit. So with 30 days until he has to report to prison, he hires a streewise guy (Kevin Hart), who normally washes his car, to prepare him for the trials and tribulations of life in the big house.

‘Stooges’ Star Will Sasso Lands Lead In ‘My Asshole Neighbor’

  • Deadline
‘Stooges’ Star Will Sasso Lands Lead In ‘My Asshole Neighbor’
Exclusive: It’s good that Will Sasso has landed the title role in a movie, but I’m led to wonder why so many film companies press forward with naughty titles knowing full well they will never make it to the screen because newspapers and TV can’t run the advertising. Sasso, most recently seen as Curly in the Farrelly Brothers-directed The Three Stooges, has signed to star opposite David Koechner in director Andrew Currie’s suburban comedy feature My Asshole Neighbor. Sasso will portray Jerry, a loud, rude redneck who moves next door to a professional mediator Paul (Koechner), turning his world upside down. Once his private little patch of peaceful suburbia is invaded, the usually peace-loving Paul finds himself waging war on Jerry — which ultimately begs the questions, who’s really the asshole, and which sphincter will prevail? Produced by Mary Anne Waterhouse, the film will shoot mid-August in Vancouver.

Etan Cohen To Make Directorial Debut with Boy Scouts Vs Zombies

  • ScifiMafia
Zombie-survival is the newest merit badge! Back in December of 2010, we shared the news with you about Paramount Pictures picking up a horror/comedy titled Boy Scouts vs. Zombies, written by College Road Trip scribes Carrie Evans and Emi Mochizuki.

Now, THR reports that Etan Cohen is in negotiations to direct this Goonies-esque project. Cohen, best known for his writing in comedy with such films as Tropic Thunder and Idiocracy, will make his directorial debut with this story about a Boy Scout troop endeavoring to save a girl scout troop from a zombie outbreak.

Boy Scouts vs. Zombies will be produced by Andy Fickman and Betsy Sullenger of Oops Doughnuts Productions and Todd Garner of Broken Road Productions, and Bryan Brucks of Brucks Entertainment with Sean Robins of Broken Road executive producing. Lona Williams (Drop Dead Gorgeous) will be crafting a new draft of the script under Cohen’s keen comedic eye.

Etan Cohen to Direct Boy Scouts vs. Zombies

There seem to be a lot of comedy writers making the jump to directing as of late, and I guess as long as they are mainly directing comedies, that's not necessarily a bad thing. Screenwriters probably have the best grasp of the comedic timing and the intended tone of a film that they wrote, and generally speaking, comedies don't usually require a lot of visual style or skill behind the camera. However, this week it looks like Tropic Thunder writer Etan Cohen will be taking on something a little bit different for his directorial debut: a horror-comedy for Paramount called Boy Scouts vs. Zombies. Yep, another genre mash-up with "vs." in the title... do I really need to say anything more? According to Heat Vision, the script is not actually one that Cohen wrote himself. Penned by Carrie Evans and Emi Mochizuki (College Road Trip), it made the 2010 Black List

'Tropic Thunder' Writer Now Set to Direct 'Boy Scouts vs. Zombies'

Awhile back, there was word that Race to Witch Mountain director was going to oversee production of Boy Scouts vs. Zombies, a project from College Road Trip writers Carrie Evans and Emi Mochizuki that made the Black List in 2010. Since then we haven't heard anything about the project, but now Heat Vision has word that Tropic Thunder and Men in Black 3 writer Etan Cohen will make his directorial debut with the film that follows a troop of young boy scouts that must save a group of girl scouts from a pack of zombies that will just spoil a good camping trip. That actually has renewed my faith in this silly sounding project. Initially, I was worried that such family friendly filmmakers were working on a film that should probably be an R-rated action horror romp, but with Etan Cohen behind the camera, this could at least turn into some ...

Tropic Thunder Screenwriter to Make Directorial Debut With Boy Scouts vs. Zombies

Screenwriter Etan Cohen has spent the past few years co-writing comedies like Tropic Thunder and Idiocracy as well as taking a turn on the script for Men in Black III. Now he's ready to make his directorial debut.

THR reports that Cohen is in negotiations to direct the horror-comedy Boy Scouts vs. Zombies, which has a plot that sounds exactly like the title suggests, with a boy scout troop trying to save a group of girl scouts from zombies.

The script, written by College Road Trip screenwriters Carrie Evans and Emi Mochizuki, was on the 2010 Black List of Hollywood's most-liked — but unproduced — screenplays. Cohen is going to supervise a new draft from Lona Williams (Drop Dead Gorgeous). Andy Fickman (You Again) was previously attached to direct, but will now produce the movie for Paramount Pictures, who will distribute once the movie is finished.

‘Boy Scouts vs. Zombies’ Lands ‘Men in Black 3′ Writer As Director

Paramount is making a movie titled Boy Scouts vs. Zombies. Need any more be said?

The project is based on a script co-penned by Carrie Evans and Emi Mochizuki, whose sole previous professional writing credit is on the disposable 2008 Martin Lawrence comedy College Road Trip. However, the pair’s Boy Scouts vs. Zombies screenplay was well-regarded enough to make the 2010 Hollywood Black List of the best unproduced scripts, and was acquired by Paramount the year afterwards.

However, Evans and Mochizuki’s script draft is getting a rewrite so… make of all that what you will.

Heat Vision is reporting that Etan Cohen will make his feature-length directorial debut on Boy Scouts vs. Zombies. Cohen got his career going writing on animated shows, ranging from Beavis and Butt-head and King of the Hill to Disney’s Recess; his ...

Boy Scouts Vs Zombies Vs Etan Cohen Vs Ethan Coen

Comic scribe Etan Cohen is in negotiations to direct Boy Scouts Vs Zombies. That’s Etan Cohen, by the way, not Ethan Coen. The two screenwriters are often confused for one another but are spectacularly different. Ethan is one half of the Coen Bros. The brothers grim behind The Big Lebowski, Fargo and No Country For Old Men. Etan Cohen meanwhile is the screenwriter for Ben Stiller hits Madagascar 2 and Tropic Thunder, as well as the upcoming Men In Black 3.

Cohen would make his directorial debut with the Paramount project, written by Carrie Evans and Emi Mochizuki, who together wrote the Martin Lawrence comedy College Road Trip (2008).

With one of those ‘Ronseal’ movie titles, you won’t be surprised to learn that the story concerns a group of boy scouts who must rescue a group of girl scouts from brain eating, reanimated corpses. Or zombies, if you will.

Screenwriter Etan Cohen To Make Directorial Debut With 'Boy Scouts Vs. Zombies'

If you visit Etan Cohen's IMDb page, it kindly reminds you that this man is not to be confused with another screenwriter, Ethan Cohen. Well good, we're glad that's cleared up, otherwise we might have been forced to come up with another lazy gag about them being different people. The page may need to be amended slightly now though, as not only is Etan Cohen a screenwriter, but he's set to become a fully fledged director too after signing on to helm "Boy Scouts vs. Zombies."

Cohen is perhaps best known for writing "Tropic Thunder" and for being one of the many contributors to "Men In Black III." We're also intrigued by his script called "Revenge of the Jocks," which is currently in pre-production. Cohen has nothing to do with the script for "Boy Scouts vs. Zombies" though, it was penned by Carrie Evans and Emi Mochizuki ("College Road Trip

Men in Black III Scribe Etan Cohen Being Tapped to Helm Boy Scouts vs. Zombies

If 'Ninjas vs. Zombies' didn't grab you. If 'Abraham Lincoln vs. Zombies' seems a little out there. And if 'Cockneys vs Zombies' just isn't going to be your cup of tea. Then why not try Paramount's 'Boy Scouts vs. Zombies'? Yes it seems just about anyone can go up against the undead these days and it appears that 'Men in Black III' and 'Madagascar 2' scribe Etan Cohen is in negotiations to make his directorial debut with the new horror-comedy for the studio. Cohen would helm from a script penned by Carrie Evans and Emi Mochizuki ('College Road Trip') which would mark his first feature as director. Lona Williams ('Drop Dead Gorgeous') has been tapped to provide a redraft. So I wonder how many Boy Scout woodland skills will be utilised in offing the dead? Whatever happens this does sound like one hell of a good project.
