Raja Gosnell has signed on to direct South of the Border, a Walt Disney Pictures comedy being produced by David Hoberman, Todd Lieberman and John Jacobs.
A live-action movie in which the animals will talk, “South” chronicles the adventures of Chloe, a pampered Beverly Hills Chihuahua accustomed to riding in a purse. While on a vacation in Mexico, she gets lost and must rely on her friends to help her get back home.
The script was written by Analisa Labianco.
Gosnell credits include Never Been Kissed, Big Momma’s House and the “Scooby-Doo” movies. He most recently directed 2005’s Yours, Mine and Ours.
