Flawed Dogs Film Planned


DreamWorks Animation appears set to tackle Flawed Dogs from the Pulitzer prize winning writer/cartoonist Berkeley Breathed, Variety is reporting.

The original children’s book (followed up by a short novel) was released under the full title “Flawed Dogs: The Year-End Leftovers at the Piddleton ‘Last Chance’ Dog Pound”) and was filled with painted illustrations that filled in the tale of canine “undesirables,” promoting real-life adoption for families looking for new pets.

Breathed, best known for his long-running comic strip “Bloom County,” is having another one of his books, Mars Needs Moms adapted for the screen. That film, from Walt Disney Pictures and ImageMovers Digital, is set to hit on March 11.
