Comedy actor Rob Schneider wants to team up with TRAINSPOTTING author Irvine Welsh and take the rest of his books to the big screen.

The DEUCE BIGALOW star became a fan of Welsh while dating a girl in the writer's native Scotland.

He says, "I dated a girl from Edinburgh and she explained to me what the stuff in Irvine's book THE ACID HOUSE meant. It is one of the funniest books ever.

"FILTH is crazy and Trainspotting is genius. I can't believe no one has made Filth into a movie."
