Congratulations to Kunal Nayyar for landing a role in director Gil Junger's new film Think Like A Dog! The family comedy has begun production in New Orleans.
We had the pleasure of attending the Indian Film Festival of Los Angeles this past April where Nayyar spoke at a moderated discussion about his career beginnings, his path to stardom on U.S. television’s highest rated comedy, and to advise the next generation of artists on how to gain a foothold in a competitive industry. It was an insightful discussion and we're looking forward to all of his upcoming projects!
The Hollywood Reporter exclusively reports, "Josh Duhamel and Megan Fox will star in the family comedy from '10 Things I Hate About You' director Gil Junger, which Double Dutch International is selling in Cannes. Bryan Callen (Ride Along) and Gabriel Bateman (Benji) have also been cast in the upcoming family comedy, which will star Megan Fox and Josh Duhamel. Written and directed by Junger, Think Like a Dog follows teen tech prodigy Oliver (Bateman) whose science-fair experiment goes awry and creates a telepathic connection between himself and his dog. Fox and Duhamel will play Oliver’s parents. We’ve assembled an extraordinary group of actors that have the elusive combination of captivating an audience with emotional depth and making that same audience laugh at will,” said Junger in a statement. “Finding the delicate balance between heart and humor is what inspires me to tell stories. Our script uses humor to engage the audience and emotion to keep them there. Think Like a Dog begins shooting May 9 in New Orleans. 10 Things I Hate About You's Andrew Lazar is producing together with M-Star International's Cory Chen, who is financing the feature. Double Dutch International is handling international sales on Think Like a Dog with Double Dutch executives Jason Moring and Stanley Preschutti executive producing.
