Before Gangster Squad

Director Ruben Fleischer didn't always have it so easy in Hollywood. Before 30 Minutes or Less, Zombieland, and his latest feature Gangster Squad (in theaters this Friday), he was a struggling filmmaker trying to catch a break. Back in 2001, he put everything he had into making a short film called The Girls Guitar Club.

“I basically spent all the money I had saved and was sure that movie deal offers were gonna come and I’d be directing pilots [for] television shows,” Fleischer told Collider back in 2009. “And as soon as people saw the short film, but of course people thought and said, ‘Oh that’s good,’ and [then] nothing ever really came of it.”

In the last four years he's directed three features, so it's safe to say he finally caught a break!
