Standup guy gears for ‘RV’

Williams is on the wagon for Colpix

Robin Williams is returning to family comedy turf. Thesp is in negotiations to topline “RV,” a laffer being produced by Red Wagon for Columbia Pictures.

Lowell Ganz and Babaloo Mandel are in discussions to do a rewrite on the project’s original script, by Geoff Rodkey (“Daddy Day Care”).

Red Wagon’s Lucy Fisher and Douglas Wick are producing.

“RV” concerns an average, dysfunctional American family about to set out on the most dangerous, high-stakes, life-threatening and traumatizing adventure of their lives: two weeks together in an RV.

Ganz and Mandel were recently writers on New Line’s romancer “The Notebook,” based on the book by Nicholas Sparks, due out in June; and on Fox’s film version of the cartoon series “Fat Albert,” now in production.

Williams is in Alaska filming dark comedy “The Big White,” opposite Holly Hunter. Upcoming pics include “Final Cut,” with Mira Sorvino, to be released this fall, and “House of D,” directed by David Duchovny. Both are for Lions Gate.

Sony-based Red Wagon is gearing up for production on the film adaptation of “Memoirs of a Geisha,” directed by Rob Marshall, and “Jarhead,” a Gulf War drama Sam Mendes is directing for Universal.
