Here below a behind-the-scenes featurette that introduces us to the film and the dog selected to play the role of Marmaduke:


A few words from Director Tom Dey about this upcoming live action Marmaduke movie:

"We've approached the movie like a John Hughes movie with dogs. The dog park is like high school for dogs. To make this kind of movie, you really have to understand that it is the dog's world and we just live in it.
Marmaduke is a teenager, and he's trying to find his way in the world. It's a boy-meets-girl story, a coming-of-age and cautionary tale."
Director Tom Dey

I'm already found of the dog they chose for the film! Impatient to watch the movie trailer of Marmaduke. I bet this movie will be damn hilarious!
