Did Zombieland Director Ruben Fleischer Just Turn Down Mi4 to Direct a Low-Budget Danny McBride Comedy?


When you direct a critically acclaimed sleeper hit that earns four-times its budget -- and in doing so manage to coax the supernatural Bill Murray cameo that Ghostbusters 3 would give its right Zuul nut for -- you're pretty much granted the keys to the kingdom. And that's precisely what's happening for Zombieland director Ruben Fleischer, who the LA Times reports has been courted for several high-profile projects -- everything from Will Ferrell comedy Daddy's Home, a chick-version of The Hangover called The Bachelorette (ooh! Rozlyn Papa crossover potential!), and -- gird your loins -- Mission: Impossible IV. But it's a smaller film that has Fleischer most excited:

It's 30 Minutes or Less, a Danny McBride vehicle with a secret logline that's set up at the sexily named Media Rights Capital -- the indie studio that brought you the Richard Kelly curio, The Box. Maybe this is a good time to revisit our interview with Fleischer shortly before he became Hollywood's zombierific golden boy, living off the juicy, delicious brains of the land. [LAT]
