A Dog's Purpose is now a major motion picture
An Amblin and Walden Media Production, a Universal Release, in theaters Worldwide January 27, 2017!
The blockbuster, critically acclaimed novel A Dog’s Purpose is finally coming to big screens worldwide!
Unlike many Hollywood movies, this one has the author of the novel, W. Bruce Cameron, (along with his wife Cathryn Michon) among the screenwriters. Directed by Oscar nominee Lass Hallstrom (A Dog’s Life) the movie is produced by Gavin Polone (Zombieland).
The all-star cast includes Dennis Quaid (The Right Stuff), Britt Robertson (Tomorrowland), John Ortiz (Silver Linings Playbook), and Peggy Lipton (Crash). Josh Gad (Frozen) narrates the movie from the point of view of a dog who tells the story of how he continues to reincarnate, coming back each time as a dog, always remembering his past dog lives and his people, and always wondering, what is my purpose?
But perhaps the most amazing stars of A Dog’s Purpose are the dogs themselves. They’re not yet household names, but trust us, they will be.
The film was shot in Canada in the fall of 2015. Here is an on set photo of Bruce, with Bolt, who plays Buddy, the last of the four incarnations of the dog.
The movie will be amazing, perhaps the best dog movie ever made. However, as everyone knows, no movie can ever contain everything that’s in a beloved book, so you definitely want your whole family to read the two book series before the film comes out.
