Diaz and Del Toro for romantic comedy?

20th Century Fox have picked up the rights for An Ex To Grind, a novel written by Jane Heller, and actors Cameron Diaz and Benicio Del Toro have been linked to the project.

In a nutshell – athlete Del Toro supports his wife (Diaz) until jumping ahead to a few years later when his career is prematurely ended by an injury, and he spends the majority of his time on the sofa drinking beer (in a Kenny Powers Eastbound and Down style manner? We can but dream.)

And the casting of Del Toro and Diaz as the rom-com’s lead couple? Was Ashton Kutcher too busy Tweeting about the school run?

An Ex To Grind? Or a studio executive will get the sack..? Speak!
