It’s time for a Zombieland reunion but without Woody Harrelson or Emma Stone, you’ll have to wait for the sequel to get that. We’re talking about director Ruben Fleischer once again teaming up with Jesse Eisenberg for a new comedy called 30 Minutes or Less. The cast of the film already includes Danny McBride and Aziz Ansari so Eisenberg’s addition is literally icing on the cake or in this case extra cheese on the pizza.
The film centers on a junior high history teacher (Ansari) and a pizza-delivery man (Eisenberg) who are forced to rob a bank when one of them is strapped to a bomb vest. (McBride is one of the men looking to score some cash.) Michael Pena will play a tattooed assassin, while Nick Swardson will play McBride’s best friend.
Can we just say that Nick Swardson is hilarious and it’s great to see him get another feature film gig? Other than that, is anyone else depressed that Ansari is in his mid-twenties playing a teacher? It kind of makes the rest of us want to step it up a notch doesn’t it? 30 Minutes or Less will begin production later this summer (July) in Michigan and is scheduled to hit theaters on August 12, 2011.
What do you think of the cast for 30 Minutes or Less? Are you interested in seeing the film?
