Steve Zahn, Romany Malco and Ben Chaplin are set to star as three of the four key characters in Shawn Ryan’s adaptation of the British series “Mad Dogs” for Amazon.
The story follows four former frat brothers who travel to Belize for a reunion with their wealthy old college friend Milo only to have their luxury vacation interrupted by murder, conspiracy and a psychotic gang lord out for their hides.
Zahn plays a married financial adviser trying too hard to retain his youth. Malco plays a former attorney turned struggling antiques dealer in the midst of a divorce. Chaplin plays the oldest of the group, a teacher trainer estranged from his family suffering from depression.
Chaplin actually starred in the original but in a different role, that of the wealthy friend. That role in this version hasn’t been cast. Philip Glenister, John Simm, Marc Warren and Max Beesley played the four guys in the original.
Cris Cole, who created the original series, penned the script and exec produces alongside Ryan.
