Jennifer Salt (Nip/Tuck) is set to write the big screen adaptation of the Charles Siebert novel Angus.

The film will examine a year in the life of a young married couple seen through the eyes of their newly adopted young dog, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Salt says of the project "It's about a couple going through a difficult time and how the dog's fearlessness after a near-death fight with a coyote inspires them and heals them."

Angus is a best selling novel; there is no set date for production.
