Tim Allen seems to be on a good thing. Much of that can he probably thank Disney for. After starring as “The Santa Clause” in two rather successful holiday comedies, the former stand-up comic turned jail-bird turned TV star is set to star in a remake of the old Dean Jones comedy “The Shaggy Dog”.
Disney has set a July start date for its remake and the studio has asked Brian Robbins [“The Perfect Score’] to direct the actor as a man who occasionally changes into a sheepdog. According to Variety, the studio reportedly had many screenwriters try to figure out how to turn the 1959 film into a suitable vehicle for Allen. The new version will be based on the storyline from “The Shaggy D.A”, a sequel to the original film. Allen will play a lawyer whose devotion to his career comes at the expense of his family. His transformation into a dog hampers his career, but teaches him to be a better father and husband. Allen is next starring in the Joe Roth-directed “Skipping Christmas”, Revolution’s adaptation of the John Grisham book. He’ll follow with “The Shaggy Dog” and move to either the third installment of “The Santa Clause” or the Revolution comedy “In the Pink”. Busy all the same, ey?
