Zombieland director Ruben Fleischer has settled on an untitled buddy-cop action-comedy as his follow-up to his highly successful action-comedy-zombie film. According to THR, Mike Arnold and Chris Poole are writing the project based on an idea by Fleischer. Nicholas Stoller (director Forgetting Sarah Marshall) will produce alongside Gavin Polone (who also produced Zombieland)
Fleischer, unsurprisingly, has been a hot ticket as his $23 million zombie movie ended up gross $75 million domestic and registered an 89% Fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes. The director was offered to do Mission: Impossible 4 as well as 30 Minutes or Less, a comedy starring Danny McBride. However, Fleischer has said he will do Zombieland 2 and intends to shoot in 3D.
