Fleischer Prepares Zombieland

Rube Fleischer to helm ZombielandNothing like getting your start directing films with a zombie comedy! Such is the case for Ruben Fleischer (pictured), who Variety reported this morning is in talks to helm Zombieland, a comedy for Columbia Pictures and producer Gavin Polone (Primeval).

The title refers to a former funeral home turned into morbid attraction after the dead come back to life. Story will follow the world’s biggest chicken shit, who somehow becomes the leader of a ragtag survivor group after the dead take over. I guess we all have our callings.

Previously Fleischer has directed commercials and music videos, so Zombieland will be his first gig directing a feature. Hopefully he’s enough of a horror fan to get it right; you can learn more about him over at his official site!
