The director of Zombieland, Ruben Fleischer, is one of the candidates to helm Ghostbusters 3 it seems...

For the past few days, director Ruben Fleischer - best known for the likes of Zombieland and Gangster Squad - will have seen his name plastered all over the internet as one of the candidates to direct Marvel's Ant-Man movie. His name has been on the shortlist for the film since Edgar Wright departed that project. Yet, as it turns out, it's his links to another movie that may temper his Ant-Man chances.

For Fleischer is on Sony's radar as the potential director of Ghostbusters 3. The Wrap reports the news, noting that Fleischer has recently become a father too, which may yet mean that he doesn't take the project on. However, he's clearly one of the candidates Sony is considering, having already directed both Zombieland and 30 Minutes Or Less for the studio.

The plan is still likely to be to get Ghostbusters 3 in front of the cameras by early next year, so an announcement may not be far away.
