Rin Tin Tin: Family Room Entertainment Corporation is pleased to announce that its wholly owned subsidiary, Emmett/Furla Films, has acquired the true-life story of "Rin Tin Tin" to produce as a feature length motion picture. The original Rin Tin Tin puppy was saved from the remains of a bombed-out kennel during World War I. That little German Shepard puppy grew up to become the star of 22 feature films and has been credited as one of Hollywood's first true "stars." The progeny of the original "Rinty," as he was affectionately called sometimes, went on to star in numerous other movies and television series, making the 80 year span of the Rin Tin Tin name one of the longest running careers in Hollywood.
Co-chairs Randall Emmett and George Furla stated: "We are very excited about this project and given that the 'Rin Tin Tin' brand is one of the longest running and most successful in Hollywood history, we believe we can produce a fantastic film, which will appeal to all ages."
