Fox 2000 is set to remake the early Chevy Chase 1980 comedy “Oh! Heavenly Dog” with Tim Hill (“Alvin and the Chipmunks”) attached to direct from a script he will co-write with Dave Johnson.
The story centers on a private investigator who is killed when he discovers a dead body. With his soul’s future at stake, he gets a chance for some redemption work when he comes back to Earth as a dog in order to solve his own murder.
Chase, Jane Seymour and Omar Sharif starred in the original while Temple Hill and Brandon Camp are producing the remake.
