‘Zombieland’ Director Finds ‘Babe in the Woods’
Tuesday, June 22 by

Zombieland director Ruben Fleischer is having the kind of year all film school graduates dream about and then usually never experience. He's already onto directing his next project 30 Minutes of Less with Danny McBride as a pizza deliveryman, and now he's signed on to helm Babe in the Woods.The Mike White-scripted comedy is about "a female freshman who arrives at Yale and is targeted by the New Jersey mob." See the title, it's a pun. In this case the "Babe" means "hot college ass," not "pig." The exact reason why the babe is targeted by the New Jersey mob is unknown, but if I had to guess, she probably witnesses the mob hit of a boy she befriends in the beginning of the first act. And if I get that right on the nose, Columbia Pictures owes me an Edible Arrangement. Chocolate-dipped pineapple, please. (Deadline)

Aziz Ansari to Deliver in ’30 Minutes or Less’
Thursday, April 8 by

The director of Zombieland, Ruben Fleischer, is doing a movie about pizza and Aziz Ansari is in negotiations to star. 30 Minutes or Less follows an aimless delivery man who is forced to rob a bank by two goons who strap a bomb to his chest. Ansari would play the poor sap's straight-man buddy, on hand to recommend deep breaths and "stepping back and looking at the situation from a different perspective." So my headline doesn't make complete sense. Sue me. (Don't sue me).  Seeing Ansari in a straight-man role would definitely be a change of pace for the actor. Not that he's a Jim Carrey type, but Ansari has been known to expend physical energy on stage, especially when discussing Coldstone Creamery. Danny McBride is rumored to play the unfortunate pizza pusher, which would set up a nice dynamic. I can already hear McBride putting his unique North Carolina twang on an Indian racial slur. (THR)
