Also this summer Schneider will star in Sony’s “Grown Ups,” a comedy about five old friends reuniting 30 years after their high school graduation.

Soon to be released, Schneider stars in Rob Hedden’s romantic comedy “You May Not Kiss the Bride” and Claire Kilner’s college comedy “American Virgin.” He recently completed principal photography on “The Chosen One,” a drama he co-wrote. Schneider stars as a man whose life is about to change after reaching the end of his rope. He also co-produces with John Schneider through their production company From Out of Nowhere. In 2009, Schneider made his directorial debut with the prison comedy “Big Stan.” He also starred in the film, alongside David Carradine, as a con man sentenced to prison.
