MUMBAI: Ruben Fleischer, who most recently directed Zombie land, will develop to direct Columbia Pictures’ Babe in the Woods.
The screenplay is an action-comedy centering on a female freshman from the Midwest who arrives at Yale and becomes a target of the New Jersey mob.
White will produce the project through his Rip Cord Productions banner. David Bernad will serve as a producer on the film.
Columbia Pictures president Matt Tolmach said, "Our experience working with Ruben on Zombie land was amazing. We love what Mike did with this script and could not be more thrilled to develop Babe in the Woods."
On the heels of directing the critical and box office hit Zombie land, starring Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone and Abigail Breslin, Fleischer is also attached to direct the MRC film 30 Minutes Or Less, with Ben Stiller’s Red Hour producing and Danny McBride, Aziz Ansari and Jesse Eisenberg attached to star.
