“Savages” co-stars John Travolta and Salma Hayek will reunite for the drama “A Three Dog Life”, based on thebest-selling memoir by Abigail Thomas, it was announced today by producers J. Todd Harris and Clark Peterson.

The film is written and will be directed by Nick Guthe, who also produces.

The Solution Entertainment Group (“The Solution”) will represent international rights at the ongoing European Film Market in Berlin. CAA and WME Global are co-representing US rights.

When Abigail Thomas’ (Hayek Pinault) husband, Rich (Travolta), gets hit by a car, his brain is shattered and he has no memory of his past life. Subject to hallucinations, rage and terror, he is forced to live in an isolated institution to control the side effects of his near-death accident. In order to be close to her husband, Abigail reinvents her life and moves from New YorkCity to the small country town, with her new family of three dogs.

“Nick’s adaptation of Abigail’s emotional memoir is incredibly moving. It’s rare to find such dramatic and honest material,” said Harris.

“With Nick directing this cast, the ingredients are in place for a poignant and engrossing movie,” added Peterson.

“Nick has adapted Thomas’ heart-wrenching memoir flawlessly, capturing the intimate details of how her marriage is put to the test following a life-changing accident. John and Salma are the perfect pair to portray this couple’s journey over the course of several years,” said The Solution’s co-founders and partners, Lisa Wilson and Myles Nestel.

”A Three Dog Life”, published in 2006 by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, was named one of The Los Angeles Times Favorite Nonfiction Books of the Year and A Washington Post Book World Best Book of the Year. It received rave reviews in major publications including Vanity Fair, Newsweek and USA Today upon release. The memoir recently resurfaced in popularity and reached #2 on The New York Times Bestseller list in September 2013.
