Just a few minutes ago I was sitting back, feet up on my desk, thinking to myself, “You know what this world needs? A movie that tells us about the Frankensteinesque Lives of the Monster Dogs”. That’s also when this latest bit of news dropped and I came up with the nifty headline above. See how things work out sometimes?
According to The Hollywood Reporter’s Heat Vision Blog Chris Wedge and screenwriter Adam Kline have set their sights on a big screen adaptation of the novel The Lives of the Monster Dogs by Kirsten Bakis.
The book revolves around a group of soldier dogs genetically engineered by mad Prussian scientists hiding in a Canadian village. The hyper-intelligent dogs, who walk erect and use voice boxes to communicate, revolt against their masters and, dressed in 19th century formal wear, show up in modern New York.
The Lives of the Monster Dogs is told through the eyes of a NYU student who becomes the chronicler of the dogs’ glamorous lives, which, as they revert to their animal states for longer and longer periods, turn tragic.
Look for more as it comes.
