Shooting Dogs: According to The Hollywood Reporter, veteran actor John Hurt is to revisit his working relationship with director Michael Caton-Jones to star in Shooting Dogs, BBC Films said Friday.

Hurt will play the leading role in "Dogs" as a priest who forges a relationship with a young teacher in Rwanda just as the slaughter of the people in the troubled African country begins.

The duo have worked together on Scandal and Rob Roy. Caton-Jones is meeting young British actors to play opposite Hurt in the movie, which is set to shoot on location in Rwanda in July and August. No budget was available as casting is under way.
