Ari Sandel takes up ‘Dancing’

Warner Bros. taps director for comedy

Warner Bros. has tapped Ari Sandel to direct comedy “Dancing With Myself” and set up the project with Polly Johnsen and Bernie Goldman.

“Dancing,” penned by Melisa Wallack, centers on an uptight workaholic who doesn’t spend much time with his family. His life becomes chaotic when he hires a hypnotist to help him quit smoking and accidentally develops a compulsion to dance anytime he hears music.

Sandel won an Oscar for live-action short for his USC graduate film “West Bank Story” in 2007 and went on to direct “Vince Vaughn’s Wild West Comedy Tour: 30 Days and 30 Nights.”

Warner-based Johnsen’s a producer on Kevin Smith’s comedy “A Couple of Cops” and on Nala Films’ comedy “Ceremony.” Wallack wrote and directed indie comedy “Meet Bill” starring Aaron Eckhart.
