Story by Jack Foley

IAN McShane is to play a dance instructor in a new British comedy being devised by Nick Frost.

The actor, who can currently be seen alongside Frost as the lead dwarf in Snow White & The Huntsman, will also line up alongside Rashida Jones in the film, which is called Cuban Fury.

The premise is based on an idea by Frost and follows a down-on-his-luck man (played by Frost) who decides to re-ignite his long-dormant passion for salsa dancing thanks to a newfound love for his American boss (Jones).

According to The Hollywood Reporter, McShane is set to play the dance instructor teaching Frost his moves.

Chris O’Dowd and Olivia Colman have also previously been cast in the project.

James Griffiths is making his directorial debut on the picture, which has been written by Jon Brown.
