Can a YouTube clip be turned into a dog of a movie?
Hollywood is eyeing a popular YouTube clip to see if they can turn it into a full-length feature.
Move over Uggie, there’s another dog that might join you in theaters.
The YouTube video “Ultimate Dog Tease,” shows a dog “talking” as a man (off-screen) tempts the Shepard mix with food. And it could be turned into a movie, reports Variety.
Paramount Pictures is in talks with Seinfeld writers, Alec Berg and David Mandel, to turn the minute-long movie into a feature-length film. The video has gotten nearly 95 million views since its release in May 2011.
Although moderately funny, stretching a short clip into full length movie will certainly pose as a challenge for the movie’s writers.
