Barry Sonnenfeld has boarded “RV” at Columbia Pictures. Helmer will direct Robin Williams in the pic being produced by Red Wagon’s Douglas Wick and Lucy Fisher.
Shooting is skedded for later this year.
The family roadtrip comedy follows Bob McNeive (Williams) and his family, who rent an RV and head for the Colorado Rockies. But McNeive’s family is a dysfunctional lot, and the clan has to contend with the campground community.
Original script was written by Geoff Rodkey (“Daddy Day Care”). Lowell Ganz and Babaloo Mandel recently turned in a rewrite.
Sonnenfeld is the director of MGM’s “Get Shorty” and the “Men in Black” pics.
Red Wagon is in production on “Bewitched,” starring Nicole Kidman and Will Ferrell, which Sony bows this summer; the film adaptation of “Memoirs of a Geisha,” a Sony, DreamWorks and Spyglass production; and Universal’s “Jarhead,” starring Jake Gyllenhaal.
