Robin Williams in Disney’s ‘Wedding’

Actor to star in comedy for Touchstone Pictures

Robin Williams is plotting to run down the aisle for Disney, signing on to star in “Wedding Banned” for Touchstone Pictures.

In the comedy, Williams will play one-half of a long-divorced couple who kidnap their daughter on her wedding day in order to keep her from making a mistake. The divorced parents rekindle their relationship as they elude cops and the angry groom.

Deal quickly pairs up Williams again with Disney after making the comedy “Old Dogs,” which bows Nov. 25 and also stars John Travolta.

The Mouse House picked up the “Wedding” script from Jack Amiel and Michael Begler last summer for Mandeville’s David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman to produce.

Nicole Rocklin and Blye Faust, who developed the script with its scribes, also serve as producers on the pic. Amiel and Begler also penned the comedies “Raising Helen” and “The Shaggy Dog” for Mandeville.

Mandeville most recently produced pic “The Proposal” and the upcoming “Surrogates” for Touchstone, and “Beverly Hills Chihuahua” for Disney before that. It’s currently in production on Paramount’s boxing drama “The Fighter.”
