Scruffy Dog “Benji” Set For A Reboot

World famous mutt Benji is making a big screen comeback in a new family adventure feature at Walden Media reports Variety.

“Love Happens” filmmaker Brandon Camp, son of “Benji” creator Joe Camp Jr., will produce, direct and pen the script for this reboot which aims to retain the feel and charm of the original films and their emotional journeys for the character – “Benji is a heartfelt character, and he’s always been an underdog.”

A nationwide search will soon begin for a canine actor to play the titular Benji and are expected to screen test dogs at a pound (the original Benji star was also a pound puppy).
