    Analeigh Tipton & Miles Teller Will Have A 'Two Night Stand'

    Ruben Fleischer’s probably happy just to be able to have some degree of control over a film he’s working on at the moment after the farce that has developed around the much-discussed “Gangster Squad.” But some positive development on one of his producing projects is something for the “Zombieland” di...

    Little-Known Ambyr Childers Books PTA's 'The Master' & Ruben Fleischer's 'Gangster Squad'

    It's an early sign of talent to watch out for when little-known actors manage to score roles in major, highly anticipated films.
