According to The Hollywood Reporter, Emmy-winning TV director Todd Holland has signed on to helm Firehouse Dog for Regency Enterprises. Josh Hutcherson is on board to star in the live-action feature, which is being produced by Michael Colleary and Mike Werb.
The story centers on Rexxx, Hollywood's most in-demand canine star. After getting lost, the divalike dog is adopted by a down-on-its-luck firehouse. Rexxx teams with a 12-year-old boy (Hutcherson) to turn the scrappy firehouse into the city's finest.
"It's very high-octane family fun", Colleary said. "It's unusual because it's a family movie but also an action film. It's a little bit of a satire of Hollywood, too, but also warmhearted."
