Warners Develops Marine Dog Tale “Nubs”
Warner Bros. Pictures are developing “Nubs”, a feel-good story of a dog and a U.S. Marine based on a publishing sensation says The Hollywood Reporter.
Justin Zackham (“The Bucket List”) will pen and produce the story of a stray dog that Maj. Brian Dennis rescued while on a tour of duty on the front lines in Iraq.
After nursing the dog back to health and caring for it as his own, he arranged to have him shipped back to the U.S. and was reunited with the dog when his tour ended.
In addition to Dennis’ life rights, filmmakers have acquired the top-selling children’s book “Nubs: A Marine, a Mutt and a Miracle,” which Dennis wrote with Mary Nethery and Kirby Larson.
