Underdog movie...

06.20.2005

"Anything where you have a dog in that superhero context, that's appealing on a global basis." Yes that is the rationale, from producer Gary Barber, that goes into developing certain movies like turning the cult cartoon UNDERDOG into a live-action family movie. I can just picture people sitting around a conference room and going, "Hmm, UNDERDOG... Talking animal movies are popular... and superhero movies are popular... So a talking dog superhero movie should be spectacular!" It's that kind of logic that has gotten us in trouble. Well Disney and Spyglass Entertainment are teaming to bring UNDERDOG to the screen in CATS AND DOGS type fashion. Underdog won't be a cartoon character (like SCOOBY-DOO) but will be a live dog "with CGI enhancements." They even plan on keeping Polly Purepred as a love interest. For a dog. Disney is looking to begin prep on the project this fall for an early 2006 start in Canada. The original cartoon debuted in 1964 and ran until 1973. He most recently appeared in a commercial for Visa and a recent NASCAR promotion.
