Rob Schneider to Direct Himself "Big" Time

According to Variety, Rob Schneider is going to direct a movie. And since I consider Variety a pretty reliable news source, I shall now go bang my head against a wall. Schnieder will be directing "Big Stan," a comedy about a geek who learns kung fu to defend himself in prison.

""Big Stan," from an original screenplay by Josh Lieb ("The Simpsons"), concerns a weak and nebbishy con man who panics when he learns he’s going to prison for fraud. He hires a mysterious martial arts guru, who transforms him into a kung fu expert who can fight off inmates who want to hurt him — and love him."

Not surprisingly, Rob Schneider will be playing the weak and nebbishy con man. We hear the director thinks Schneider is hilarious.
