DreamWorks finds ‘Dog’s Purpose’

Studio acquires rights to novel; Gavin Polone to produce

DreamWorks is leashing W. Bruce Cameron’s tome “A Dog’s Purpose” to the bigscreen, with Gavin Polone producing.

Studio has acquired the film rights to the bestselling novel, about a canine who discovers his true purpose in life over a handful of lifetimes with different owners.

Cameron will pen the adapted script with Cathryn Michon (“Designing Women,” “China Beach”).

A well-known syndicated humor columnist, Cameron is the author of “8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter,” a bestseller that was turned into the ABC series, and follow-up “8 Simple Rules for Marrying My Daughter.”

“A Dog’s Purpose,” published in July, marked Cameron’s fiction debut. Polone’s producing credits include “Zombieland,” “Ghost Town” and “Gilmore Girls.”
