ComingSoon.net talked exclusively to Emma Roberts and Jake T. Austin about their new comedy, Hotel for Dogs, opening in theaters on Friday, January 16.
In the Thor Freudenthal-directed film, new guardians forbid 16-year old Andi (Roberts) and her younger brother, Bruce (Austin) to have a pet, so Andi has to use her quick wit to help find a new home for their dog, Friday. The resourceful kids stumble upon an abandoned hotel and using Bruce’s talents as a mechanical genius, transform it into a magical dog-paradise for Friday and eventually for all Friday’s friends. When barking dogs make the neighbors suspicious, Andi and Bruce use every invention they have to avoid anyone discovering “who let the dogs in.”
