Rob Schneider will get another big payday when Grown Ups 2 rolls cameras, but most of us thought his leading man days (such as they were) had all but vanished. However, Deadline reports that he and producer Gale Ann Hurd are collaborating on Teach Me to Dance, a (what else?) comedy written by his wife, Patricia Azarcoya Schneider, and Marion Douglas, that follows “a man who schemes to win back his ex-girlfriend by learning how to dance.” It’s all in the title.
So — if you happened to not only miss Rob Schneider, but really wanted him back in theaters, too, this is the news for you. The rest of us will commence general disinterest: now.
Is Schneider someone you’ve wanted to see back onscreen? Will Dance satiate this thirst?

• Taylor Lautner is aiming to sign onto Grown Ups 2, in which he will reportedly go “toe-to-toe” with Adam Sandler. Probably better than going ab-to-ab. Kevin James, Chris Rock, Maya Rudolph, Salma Hayek, David Spade, and director Dennis Dugan are all returning. [THR]
• Liam Neeson and Olivia Wilde are set for Third Person, an ensemble drama spanning New York, Paris, and Rome, from Crash writer-director Paul Haggis — who certainly knows from sprawling, intersecting storylines. [Vulture]

Exclusive: The remaking of Rob Schneider as comic leading man continues! After scoring in the CBS sitcom Rob, Schneider’s teaming with Terminator and The Walking Dead producer Gale Anne Hurd on the feature comedy vehicle Teach Me to Dance. He’ll star and she’ll produce and the film has a script by Patricia Azarcoya Schneider and Marion Douglas, based on an idea by Azarcoya Schneider (the producer of Mexican TV shows is Rob’s wife). The comedy is about a man who schemes to win back his ex-girlfriend by learning how to dance. Schneider, who regularly shows up in Adam Sandler movies in quirky roles, of course played the iconic man-whore Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo, a funny sleeper hit that Schneider wrote. The R-rated sequel, European Gigolo, didn’t fare nearly as well, but was still pretty funny. Gersh reps Schneider and the writers. »
