Wick, Fisher hitching prez to Red Wagon

Co.'s new projects include 'Dreadnaught,' 'Geisha'

Bobby Cohen has been named president of Red Wagon Entertainment, the Sony-based production partnership between Doug Wick and Lucy Fisher.

He joins as the company gains traction on several projects with tentpole potential.

They include “Dreadnaught,” the Dominic Sena-directed drama that’ll star Vin Diesel; “Bewitched,” the Nora Ephron-directed comedy that has Nicole Kidman and Jim Carrey as possible participants; and “Memoirs of a Geisha,” the drama that “Chicago” director Rob Marshall is circling.

Red Wagon is also readying the WWII drama “Fertig” for Brad Pitt, as well as a revival of the musical “Bye Bye Birdie” and “The Lone Ranger.”

Cohen replaces Gail Lyon, who’s going her own way but will continue as consultant to the company and exec producer on “Peter Pan,” “Win a Date With Tad Hamilton” and “Dreadnaught.”

‘Happy’ days

Cohen previously ran his own shingle, Cohen Pictures, which had a Miramax deal, and he’s prepping the Don Roos-directed “Happy Endings” with Jennifer Garner and Lisa Kudrow. He also produced the Gwyneth Paltrow comedy “View From the Top,” “Bounce,” “Down to You” and “The Cider House Rules.” Prior to that, Cohen had been a Miramax exec. The NYU grad started at Writers & Artists.

“After flourishing at Miramax and then emerging as a producer with an actual point of view, Bobby arrives with real moviemaking credentials,” Wick said.

He and Fisher are in post-production on the P.J. Hogan-directed adaptation of “Peter Pan,” which will be released for Christmas, and they are in production on the Robert Luketic-directed comedy “Win a Date With Tad Hamilton,” which stars Josh Duhamel, Kate Bosworth, Topher Grace, Nathan Lane and Sean Hayes.
