‘Marley & Me’ fetches Alan Arkin

Actor joins cast of Frankel's Fox 2000 film

Fox 2000 has added Alan Arkin to the cast of “Marley & Me” and has set a spring start date.

Owen Wilson and Jennifer Aniston star in the adaptation of the John Grogan bestseller, which David Frankel is directing.

Gil Netter and Karen Rosenfelt are producing. Scott Frank wrote the most recent draft of the script.

Wilson plays a Philadelphia newspaper columnist who decides with his wife to adopt a dog to give them a taste of parenthood. The incorrigible Labrador retriever is a hyperactive handful, turning their lives upside down. Arkin will play the editor of the newspaper.

Pic is Wilson’s first since his emergency hospitalization last summer. The film was originally slated to begin production in January but was postponed because Aniston was shooting “He’s Just Not That Into You” and the Stephen Belber-directed “Management.” She’s now filming the Brandon Camp-directed “Traveling.”

Arkin recently wrapped the Warner Bros. comedy “Get Smart,” which opens June 21.
