Following Zombieland, Ruben Fleischer has become one of the most in-demand directors in Hollywood, and while he’s just about to start shooting the Danny McBride, Aziz Ansari and Jesse Eineberg comedy 30 Minutes Or Less and has a Zombieland sequel up his sleeve, it seems he’s also got another project that’s being developed for him.
Variety reports that Fleischer is attached to the action comedy Babes In the Wood, about a female freshman from the Midwest who arrives at Yale and becomes a target of the New Jersey mob. Although that sounds like the most generic of premises, the good news is that the script has been written by Mike White, who’s always brought something interesting to the party with his work on the likes of Chuck & Buck, The Good Girl, The School Of Rock and Nacho Libre.
There’s no news on when the movie might go into production, and with Fleischer pretty busy at the moment, we may have to wait a while. However, hopefully by the time it does start shooting, they’ll have found a better title.
