Bench Warmers: According to Variety, Revolution Studios has found a manager for its Bench Warmers.
Studio is in negotiations with veteran comedy director Dennis Dugan (National Security) to helm the baseball laffer.
The story centers on three men who were poor at sports when they were kids but try to make up for it by forming a three-man team that challenges nine-player youth baseball teams.
The script, from an idea by Adam Sandler, is by Allen Covert (Eight Crazy Nights) and Nick Swardson (Malibu's Most Wanted).
Rob Schneider and David Spade are on tap to play two of the men. The third has not yet been set.
"Bench Warmers" is fast-tracked at Revolution for an April start date. Pic is being produced by Jack Giaraputo of Sandler's Happy Madison shingle.
