Comic cooking up laffer

Thesp will produce pic with New Wave's Katz for TWC

The Weinstein Co. will develop an untitled comedy feature for comedian Dane Cook to star in and produce. Project is based on a Cook pitch being kept under wraps by the Weinsteins.

New Wave Entertainment’s Barry Katz will produce along with Cook, and Brian Volk-Weiss will exec produce.

“For several years now my goal has been to show people ideas I’ve had outside of the world of standup comedy,” said Cook. Pic will be overseen by TWC production execs Michael Cole, Carla Gardini and Eric Robinson.

TWC’s upcoming projects include “Lucky Number Slevin” and helmer Anthony Minghella’s “Breaking & Entering.”

Cook’s credits include Lionsgate’s upcoming “Employee of the Month.”
