Rob Schneider to Star and Direct in The Animal 2
The 2001 hit comedy film The Animal is set to return after almost 20 years. Deadline reported that Rob Schneider is set to star and direct in the sequel film currently in the works. He will reprise his role of Marvin, the police officer who finds himself becoming animalistic after a science experiment at the hands of a mad scientist. With the film getting a green light to move forward, Schneider has begun to pen the film alongside his wife Patricia Schneider and Jamie Lissow. Schneider will also be producing alongside Michael McConnell.
The Animal 2‘s official logline reads:
“Marvin Mange, now an old dog, needs to learn new tricks as he hunts down a new uber-animal with powers far beyond his own.”
The Animal 2 will begin production in early 2023 with a planned premiere on Fox‘s Tubi streaming platform. No official release date has been released.
