Good dog, bad dog… Wes Anderson has rounded up a pack of ’em.

In the past, Anderson has talked about his love for Richard Adams’s Watership Down, and that was evident in the way he borrowed elements of that story’s climax for The Fantastic Mr. Fox. Will this be influenced by Adams’s The Plague Dogs? (That’s one heart-sickeningly vision of the world, and certainly not a story for children.)

Get ready. FOX Searchlight will “let the dogs out” in March 2018. If there’s any justice, Over the Rhine will compose the soundtrack. (Not likely, but wouldn’t that be perfect?)
