Rory Rosegarten, producer of hugely popular US sitcom “Everybody Loves Raymond”, has acquired the rights to make a feature-length film about The Ramones.

The seminal punk band have spawned many documentaries, including the recent “End of the Century: The Story of The Ramones”, directed by Michael Gramaglia, a huge critical success.

The film will be based on the authorized biography “I Slept With Joey’s Brother” – written by Joey’s brother, Mickey Leigh, and punk chronicler Legs McNeil.

Rosegarten has also negotiated a deal with the late rocker’s mother, Charlotte Lesher, who is the executor of Ramone’s estate. The family has given him access to the band’s staggering collection of tracks.

The movie’s expected release is 2008.
