Gere Loves Dogs
05.21.07 by REELZ
Variety is reporting that Richard Gere is set to star in and produce Hachiko: A Dog's Story. Production should begin in September.
In the film, Gere will portray a college professor who takes an abandoned dog into his home. The pooch proves the old "man's best friend" adage as the two form a bond of intense love (platonic love, you freak!).
The story is an adaptation by Stephen P. Lindsay based on a 1987 Japanese film Hachiko Monogatari.
