Fleischer Helms Comedy For Dreamworks

Ruben Fleischer (“Zombieland”) is set to direct an untitled action comedy pitch for Dreamworks Pictures says Reuters.

The story is described as a buddy cop comedy but details are being kept under wraps. Dreamworks won the script after a fierce bidding war broke out when after the script hit the market late last week.

Over the weekend it was reported Fleischer would likely helm “30 Minutes or Less”, a new Danny McBride-led comedy as his next project. That will likely be put on hold.

Nicholas Stoller and Gavin Polone will produce.
