Ruben Fleischer to Helm Disney Family Adventure Overnight


Zombieland and Gangster Squad helmer Ruben Fleischer is taking on Walt Disney Pictures’ upcoming family adventure feature, Overnight. The Hollywood Reporter has the story, adding that the project was initially set up at Columbia Pictures but moved to Disney last year.

The project hails from screenwriter Oren Uziel, whose upcoming genre mashup comedy The Kitchen Sink hits theaters early next year. According to the trade, Overnight is something akin to “‘Home Alone’ in an FAO Schwartz-esque toy store”.

Neal Moritz is producing Overnight.
