EFM: John Travolta and Salma Hayek Pinault will star in the drama, which The Solution Entertainment Group is shopping at the EFM.
Nick Guthe will direct from his adaptation of Abigail Thomas’ memoir about a New York woman who relocates with her dogs to a small country town to be near her husband, who has been confined to an isolated institution after a serious accident.
J Todd Harris and Clark Peterson will produce A Three Dog Life with Guthe.
“Nick’s adaptation of Abigail’s emotional memoir is incredibly moving,” said Harris. “It’s rare to find such dramatic and honest material.”
“With Nick directing this cast, the ingredients are in place for a poignant and engrossing movie,” said Peterson.
“Nick has adapted Thomas’ heart-wrenching memoir flawlessly, capturing the intimate details of how her marriage is put to the test following a life-changing accident,” said The Solution co-founders and partners Lisa Wilson and Myles Nestel. “John and Salma are the perfect pair to portray this couple’s journey over the course of several years.”
