Fred Ward will join Danny McBride and Jesse Eisenberg in 30 Minutes Or Less
Posted by: Nathan Swank
Veteran actor Fred Ward has been cast as Danny McBride’s father in 30 MINUTES OR LESS. The MRC/Sony comedy will be directed by ZOMBIELAND’s Reuben Fleisher and is set for an August 12, 2011 release date. The rest of the cast includes Jesse Eisenberg, Michael Pena and Aziz Ansari and will be produced by Ben Stiller and Stuart Cornfeld.
The story centers on a pizza-delivery man and a junior high history teacher who are forced to team up and rob a bank due to being strapped to a bomb. What? Oh well, could be fun. Ever since TREMORS, I’ve been a fan of Ward so I’m glad to see him working. The screenplay is by Michael Diliberti and Matthew Sullivan.
