‘Mutt’ barks up scribes’ tree

Duo to write pic about a dog scamming multiple owners

BAFTA-winning comedy screenwriter Dick Clement (“The Commitments”) and Alan Shearman have come onboard to pen “Mutt,” a live-action romantic caper pic that starts shooting this summer on location in the U.K.

Set in modern-day Scotland and London, it’s the story of a dog abandoned in the big city who “auditions” new owners. On a whim, he secures two new owners who are destined to meet and fall in love, but Mutt’s mission is to keep them apart and keep his doggie dreams of double food, double walks and double love intact.

Pic will be produced by Ian Scorer with exec producer Stephan Evans.

Mutt himself will be in Cannes Friday to present the fourth annual Palm Dog award ceremony on the beach of the British Pavilion.
