Ruben Fleischer is apparently one of Sony's targets to take over Ghostbusters 3, reports The Wrap. The issue is that apparently Fleischer is hesitant to take on a bigger project since he's just become a father and wants to spend some time with his kid. Hey, congrats, Ruben, very cool. Fleischer is something of an in-house choice, as he previously directed 'Zombieland' and '30 Minutes Of Less' for Sony, the studio behind the latest attempt at getting the Ghostbusters back on the big screen.
Of course, Fleischer has a leg up on most other candidates, including recent rumoured candidates Phil Lord and Chris Miller. In Zombieland, Fleischer somehow secured the services of Bill Murray for a sequence where he played himself, and even involved the old proton pack for a Ghostbusters gag. Given how prickly and hard-to-reach the elusive Mr. Murray truly is, it was a minor triumph that many feel was the highlight of the film, and subsequently Fleischer's career.
