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!
