There's not much news just yet on the inevitably awesome Canadian production known as The Dog Squad 3D, but here at Cinematical we like to cover only the biggest and most important film stories, so we'll be following this one on a daily basis. According to The Hollywood Reporter, ContentFilm has snagged worldwide rights to, yes, The Dog Squad 3D, and the live-action kiddie comedy will shoot up north later this year.

What filmmakers would dare to tackle such a cinematic challenge? Screenwriter Stephen Carpenter (Blue Streak, The Man), producer Rick Benattar (The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, The Lost Boys 2: The Tribe), and director Les Mayfield, an auteur whose credits include not only the two Carpenter screenplays mentioned above, but also silver screen masterworks like American Outlaws, Flubber, and Encino Man. I seriously cannot wait to see this movie.

The Hollywood Reporter even cares enough to give us the names of some of the dogs in the movie. They are "Donut, Clint, Samantha and Bert." Awesome. There's no (non-canine) casting to mention just yet, but I bet Breckin Meyer, Brendan Fraser, and Jason Lee would be on the short list. Those guys will co-star with CG anything.
