Eisenberg finds time for ’30 Minutes’

Reteams with 'Zombieland' helmer Fleischer for comedy

Jesse Eisenberg is set to reteam with his “Zombieland” helmer Ruben Fleischer for MRC’s “30 Minutes or Less.”

Danny McBride and Aziz Ansari have already boarded the comedy, which will begin lensing in July in Michigan.

Based on a screenplay by Michael Diliberti and Matthew Sullivan, story centers on two wannabe criminals who force a loser pizza delivery man to rob a bank in 30 minutes or less. Eisenberg will play the pizza delivery man.

Sony will release the pic Aug. 12, 2011. Ben Stiller’s Red Hour shingle is producing.

Eisenberg, who broke out in Noah Baumbach’s “The Squid and the Whale,” has landed a number of high-profile comedy roles including Greg Mottola’s “Superbad” follow-up “Adventureland.” He next will be seen in David Fincher’s “The Social Network.”

Eisenberg is repped by ICM.
