Scribe builds ‘House 2’

Hoberman, Armitraj producing sequel

Mandeville Films has set “Bringing Down the House 2” in motion with screenwriter Jason Filardi.

Shingle is also negotiating with “Mrs. Doubtfire” scribe Randi Mayem Singer to script its remake of “Topper” as a reteam for “House” helmer Adam Shankman and Steve Martin.

Both projects are Disney-based.

Mandeville topper David Hoberman and his former Hyde Park partner Ashok Armitraj are producing “Bringing Down the House.” Filardi wrote the original smash hit, and the hope is to reinlist Shankman, Martin and Queen Latifah.

Filardi is also scripting “Navy Seal” at Disney for Arnold and Anne Kopelson, and he’s scripting “Ghetto Buck” at Columbia for Martin Lawrence and director Dennis Dugan.

Hoberman is producing “Topper” with Shankman and Jennifer Gibgot through their Offspring Entertainment banner. The 1937 original starred Cary Grant and Constance Bennett as a high society duo who get killed in an auto accident, become ghosts and inflict their rebellious spirit on an uptight, stodgy banker named Cosmo Topper, to be played by Martin.

Hoberman’s Mandeville is teamed with Armitraj’s Hyde Park on the Kate Hudson-starrer “Raising Helen,” directed by Garry Marshall, and the upcoming Kevin Bray-directed remake of “Walking Tall” which stars the Rock.

Mandeville also exec produces the cable series “Monk” and the is producing “Providence,” which stars Matthew Broderick and Alec Baldwin.
