A new Robin Williams comedy will be opening soon called "RV" about a father who takes his dysfunctional family on a RV trip to find themselves. I had developed a screenplay treatment several years ago about much of the same idea (it would be fun to shoot given the camping locations one can use), with a bunch of twists. I'm certain many others have had the similar basic idea as it seems a natural.

It reminds me of the time I had a story line involving terrorists seizing an office building, dreamt up while being penned up in a cubicle farm for work, and based partly on the real Stockholm incident (see the Stockholm Syndrome). Then several years later Die Hard appears.

It was interesting to see where the writers took Die Hard, and I look forward to seeing if RV works. Certainly I now have a sequel plot!
