Jesse Eisenberg to Reteam with Director Ruben Fleischer in 30 Minutes or Less
06.01.10 by BJSprecher
Jesse Eisenberg is quickly becoming one of the busiest young actors in Hollywood today. Eisenberg was already building a decent resume before starring as Columbus in director Ruben Fleischer's hit action-comedy Zombieland, and since then his stock has continued to rise. Eisenberg just appeared with Michael Douglas in Solitary Man, he is currently starring in Holy Rollers, and he has completed work on a half-dozen other movies that are awaiting release. Eisenberg also plans on reprising the role of Columbus in Zombieland 2, but before that he will re-team with Fleischer in the new comedy 30 Minutes or Less.
According to Variety, Eisenberg has signed on to play the lead role in 30 Minutes or Less, which will also star Danny McBride and Aziz Ansari. Based on a screenplay by Matthew Sullivan and Michael Diliberti, 30 Minutes or Less tells the story of a pizza delivery man (Eisenberg) who is forced to rob a bank in, you guessed it, 30 minutes or less. Ben Stiller's Red Hour production company will produce and Sony will distribute. The movie is expected to begin shooting in July.
