Giamatti, Rudd, Hawkins Pat A “Dog”

Sally Hawkins, Paul Giamatti and Paul Rudd are all teaming up to star in Phil Morrison’s comedy drama “Lucky Dog” at Touch Feely Films, Sidney Kimmel Entertainment, GreeneStreet Films and HanWay says The Hollywood Reporter.

Melissa James Gibsom’s script has Giamatti and Rudd playing two French-Canadian con men with the former arriving home from a stint in prison to find the latter sleeping with his ex-wife.

The pair put differences aside to pull off a get-rich-quick scheme that involves selling Christmas trees on the streets of New York City.

John Penotti, Dan Carey and Elizabeth Giamatti will produce. Shooting kicks off next month in New York City.
