Chris Wedge and his WedgeWorks banner have dipped into their discretionary fund to pick up Lives of the Monster Dogs, a postmodern “Frankenstein”-style novel by Kirsten Bakis, reports Heat Vision. Adam Kline is on board to write the screenplay with Wedge, best known for directing Ice Age (garbage), who is eyeing it as his live-action directorial debut. Dogs revolves around a group of soldier dogs genetically engineered by mad Prussian scientists hiding in a Canadian village. The hyper-intelligent dogs, who walk erect and use voice boxes to communicate, revolt against their masters and, dressed in 19th century formal wear, show up in modern New York. The book is told through the eyes of a NYU student who becomes the chronicler of the dogs’ glamorous lives, which, as they revert to their animal states for longer and longer periods, turn tragic. It doesn’t sound as horror-themed as the title suggests. Hmmmm.
