Owen Wilson and Jennifer Aniston will team for Fox 2000’s adaptation of John Grogan’s bestselling memoir “Marley & Me” reports Variety.
Marley is the yellow Labrador retriever adopted by Grogan, a columnist for the Philadelphia Inquirer, and his wife. Their idea was to give them a taste of parenthood, but the dog proved to be a hyperactive handful.
He wreaks havoc, gets kicked out of obedience school and gets even worse when the children begin to arrive, yet becomes an indispensable part of the family.
David Frankel (“The Devil Wears Prada”) will helm and Scott Frank is currently adapting the script. Shooting will begin next year.
