Nick Frost set for Cuban Fury?

Nick Frost and Chris O'Dowd could be getting their dancing shoes on for new comedy Cuban Fury.

The two funnymen are tipped to square off against one another on the dancefloor as light-footed salsa rivals, despite being unlikely dance stars, reported

Nick, who next stars as a dwarf in Snow White And The Huntsman, is expected to play a former teen salsa prodigy who is attempting a career comeback, after his rival (played by Chris) brought about his downfall.

Big Talk Productions - the company behind Spaced, Shaun Of The Dead, Hot Fuzz and Attack The Block - is backing the movie, which has a script written by Jon Brown.

No director or other cast members have been announced yet.

Next up for Chris, who previously starred in Bridesmaids, is a supporting role in the Knocked Up sequel, This Is Forty. He has also wrapped production on Wayne Blair's debut feature, Australian musical The Sapphires.

He is also set to write and executive produce a new US television comedy called Big Men.
