Fleischer To Take “30 Minutes” With McBride

Ruben Fleischer (“Zombieland”) is tipped to direct the comedy “30 Minutes or Less” which is being developed as a star vehicle for Danny McBride says The Los Angeles Times and Deadline.

Matthew Sullivan & Michael Diliberti’s Black List script involves “a pizza delivery man on a strange caper” though story details are being kept secret. Sony Pictures Entertainment is acquiring distribution rights to the film from Media Rights Capital.

Filming could kick off as early as this Summer, though will depend upon McBride’s schedule on HBO’s “East Bound and Down”. Fleischer was also apparently seriously considered to direct the fourth “Mission: Impossible” but he ultimately passed on the project. The same thing has been implied for “Babe in the Woods” which he’s previously had conversations about directing.
