Funny men pair for Sony

Ramis, Wilson team for new laffer

Harold Ramis is directing an untitled laffer for Sony, penning the screenplay and producing with Owen Wilson, who’ll likely star.

Storyline of the historical comedy is being kept under wraps.

Columbia co-prexy of production Matt Tolmach will oversee for the studio.

Ramis is at work on Focus Features’ “Ice Harvest,” starring John Cusack and Billy Bob Thornton. The comedy director is known for such films as “Groundhog Day” and “Caddyshack.”

Wilson will next be seen in Wes Anderson’s “The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou,” opposite Bill Murray, and in next summer’s New Line comedy “Wedding Crashers,” starring Vince Vaughn. He previously teamed with Anderson on “The Royal Tenenbaums” and “Bottle Rocket,” both of which Wilson co-wrote and starred in.
