Men Don't Quit: According to Variety, New Line Cinema has acquired the William Tepper script Men Don't Quit with visions of pairing "Everybody Loves Raymond" star Ray Romano with "King of Queens" star Kevin James to topline.
James is committed to making the film. While Romano has been involved in script development and the selection of a director, his camp asserts he won't make a deal until all the elements are in place.
Romano and James, who are pals from the standup comedy circuit, will play friends who team as door-to-door salesman of bulk quantities of frozen meat. The boys are in a slump, and if they don't move some beef on this particular day, they're dead meat.
