Marmaduke: The Movie, And Not A Moment Too Soon!

The long wait is over, you guys. Hunger is the best sauce. (What?) From Reuters (via FilmDrunk):

In its latest animal-central project, Fox has signed director Tom Dey to develop a big-screen adaptation of “Marmaduke.” Brad Anderson created the decades-running newspaper comic, which revolves around a mischievous Great Dane who lives with the Winslow family in 1954. The project is in the early stages of development, and the studio declined comment on specifics. It hasn’t been decided whether “Marmaduke” will be a live-action film, animated or a mutt [sic].

Perfect. The tag-line on the poster will probably be “Who Let The Dog Out?” Because of how this movie is on the cutting edge of what is happening.

After the jump, a first look at the screenplay for Marmaduke: Full Throttle.

INT. LIVING ROOM – DAY

PHIL walks in and finds MARMADUKE sitting in his chair.

PHIL
Marmaduke, get out of my chair!
CUT TO:

EXT. HOUSE – DAY

DOTTIE watches as the dog-catcher’s truck approaches. MARMADUKE has his head hanging out of the passenger side door.

DOTTIE
Oh, not again!
CUT TO:

INT. THAI PRISON – DAY

ALICE MARANO sharpens a stick of bamboo against a rock. Her bare feet calloused and bleeding, and her clothes are in dirty tatters. She brushes a strand of greasy hair from her brow.

ALICE
I wish I could leave this Brokedown Palace.

MARMADUKE nudges her with his nose.

ALICE
Not now, Marmaduke.

CUT TO:

EXT. LEMONADE STAND – DAY

BILLY sits with his head in his hands. MARMADUKE sits next to him with his head in his paws.

BILLY
How was Thailand?

THE END.
