Dolph Lundgren, Danny Trejo, Jennifer Love Hewitt and more join Christmas canine crime caper Pups Alone
THR is reporting that Dolph Lundgren (Aquaman) is set to lead the cast of the family Christmas canine crime caper Pups Alone alongside Danny Trejo (Machete), Jennifer Love Hewitt (9-1-1), Jerry O’Connell (Billions), Rob Schneider (Deuce Bigalow), Keith David (The Princess and the Frog), Nicholas Turturro (BlacKkKlansman), Malcolm McDowell (Truth Seekers) and Eric Roberts (Runaway Train).
The film is being directed by Alex Merkin (Altitude) and sees Lundgren portraying “Victor VonManure, the conniving and obnoxious next-door neighbor to the inventor of a dog collar that translates canine thoughts into words. When Victor hires two inept thieves to steal the invention while the inventor is away on a company ski trip, the neighborhood dogs catch wind of the plan and join forces to set up a house of horrors to stop the would-be robbers.”
Brandon Burrows (The Last Son of Isaac Lemay) of Firebrand and Courtney Lauren Penn (The Last Son of Isaac Lemay) of Renegade Entertainment are producers on the film, which has been shopped to potential buyers at the European Film Market this past week.
