Two doggy deals worth noting: DreamWorks has bought screen rights to W. Bruce Cameron’s bestseller A Dog’s Purpose, and hired the author to cowrite the script with his wife, Cathryn Michon. Gavin Polone will produce. Cameron’s credits include 8 Simple Rules For Dating My Daughter and Michon’s include China Beach. The book’s about a pooch’s quest to discover his purpose in life over the course of several lifetimes with multiple owners. Deal was high six-figures, brokered by APA. Separately, Dog Whisperer guy Cesar Millan is plotting a remake of The Doberman Gang, updating the 70s action-heist film series. Hopefully, each will refrain from killing the dog, a plot development which is a staple of pooch pictures, and one which always stops me from seeing them with the kids. No studio, but Millan is producing with Darren Reagan.
