With zombies being so hot right now, it’s likely Ruben Fleischer will jump on Zombieland 2 after he finishes up 30 Minutes Or Less. But not if Warner Bros has their druthers. The studio is currently negotiating to have the direct take on the directing duties of the rumored to be hot script that has had trouble locking down a director, Tales From The Gangster Squad.
Gangster Squad you’ll recall is about a team of 1940’s police mercenaries who target and curtail the spread of East Coast organized crime. I like that setup. Fleischer has a tough decision on his hands between this and Zombieland. Mobsters vs. Zombies. You know what? I think I’d really like to see THAT. Get on it, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies guy!!
