Hello, Jana here,


David Koechner, is much more than the perfect guy to deliver a huge laugh or to set someone else up for the delivery. He’s got a face you instantly recall in the midst of a good memory of a great scene.  Actor, director, writer, producer and all around funny man. He’s got tons of credits up his sleeve including the blockbuster hilarity inducing ‘Anchorman‘ and it’s sequel. He’s recently had director co-writer Christopher Landon pitching woo at him for Paramount’s upcoming horror-comedy about Boy Scouts who try to fend off a zombie attack, and protect their  Girl Scouts, in their small town. ‘Scouts Vs. Zombies‘ sees Koechner joining a cast comprised of Joseph Morgan (‘Master and Commander’, ‘The Vampire Diaries’, ‘Immortals’), Tye Sheridan (‘The Tree of Life’, ‘Mud’) , Logan Miller (‘Growing Up Fisher’, ‘Night Moves’),  Andy Fickman, Todd Garner, Bryan Brucks and Betsy Sullenger


Shooting begins in May. They’re working from a script that 2 relatively newcomers put together Emi Mochizuki and Carrie Evans. Lona Williams was brought in to work with the writing team bringing some veteran screenplay experience to the mix. With character Champ Kind, Koechner shone through as the completely unaware chauvinist we’ve all learned to love. Currently Koechner has a few other titles in working progress ‘Road Hard’ is one. It’s about a comedian who’s movie and sitcom deals have dried up heads back on the road to try and discover his love of stand up. Another is ‘Hell & Back’ that features two best friends set out to rescue their pal after he’s accidentally dragged to hell. Believe it or not, this one is not only a comedy, but an animated comedy. I’m predicting pure gold from both!
