ON

Ruben Fleischer is in negotiations to direct Columbia Pictures zombie comedy Zombieland, reports Variety.

Rhett Reese-Paul Wernick screenplay centers on the most frightened guy on Earth who leads a motley crew of survivors in a world overrun by zombies. The title refers to an old funeral home that is turned into a morbid attraction called Zombieland.

Sony is ramping up the project as a potential pre-SAG/DGA strike film and is eyeing an April start date.
