Show Dogs to film in UK and Las Vegas
A feature film about talking police dogs is set to film later this year in the UK and Las Vegas.
Show Dogs comes from director Raja Gosnell whose credits include The Smurfs films and Big Momma’s House. Gosnell is also part of the executive producing team; Philip von Alvensleben produces.
The film centres on Max, a Rottweiler that has to go undercover as a show dog; the screenplay is by Max Botkin,
Show Dogs will begin filming with a 9-week stint in the UK, before moving on to Las Vegas early next year. Although the big-budget movie Jason Bourne filmed a key car-chase sequence in the city earlier this year, Las Vegas has generally struggled to attract film projects due to the lack of a competitive tax incentive.
Conversely, the UK’s studios are currently bulging with international film projects as the attractive tax credits for films and high-end TV dramas continue to sustain inward investment.
Among the many features setting up for UK shoots are Mary Poppins Returns; the untitled Jurassic World sequel; Kenneth Branagh’s Murder on the Orient Express; The Nutcracker and the Four Realms; Cruella; Dungeons & Dragons and The Flash.
