Comedian Robin Williams is in talks to star in RV, a comedy about “an average, dysfunctional American family about to set out on the most dangerous, high-stakes, life-threatening and traumatizing adventure of their lives: two weeks together in an RV,” according to Variety magazine.
The film will be produced by Sony’s Red Wagon unit for Columbia Pictures, reports Variety.
Lowell Ganz and Babaloo Mandel are in discussions to do a rewrite on the project’s original script, by Geoff Rodkey.
Red Wagon’s Lucy Fisher and Douglas Wick will be the producers.
Williams is currently in Alaska filming the dark comedy The Big White, opposite Holly Hunter. His upcoming films include Final Cut, with Mira Sorvino, to be released this fall, and House of D, directed by David Duchovny.
Ganz and Mandel recently were writers on New Line’s romance The Notebook, based on the book by Nicholas Sparks. It is due out in June. The pair also were writers on Fox’s film version of the cartoon series Fat Albert, which is now in production.
