Hollywood goes to the 'Dogs'
Posted 08.15.07 by reelz
Hollywood seems to have canine-brain this week, and who can blame it?
Julia Roberts' niece, actress Emma Roberts (Nancy Drew, Aquamarine), will be starring in Hotel for Dogs, a live-action kids' flick about two teen orphans who hide stray dogs in an abandoned hotel. Jeff Lowell (John Tucker Must Die) adapted the script from the 1971 novel by Lois Duncan. It will be the feature directoral debut of Thor Freudenthal.
Bernie Mac (Transformers, Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle) will be adding his comedic talents to Old Dogs, the John Travolta-Robin Williams comedy about two middle-aged men who find themselves in the charge of 7-year-old twins. Mac will play "Johnny Lunchbox," a puppeteer with Barney-like status among kids.
