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.”
