Aniston and Wilson to Star in Marley and Me

Dog book to be made into a movie.
Marley and Me, a bestselling memoir by John Grogan all about his spirited Labrador retriever Marley will be adapted into a full-length feature film starring Jennifer Aniston and Owen Wilson.

What's it about?
"Marley is the yellow lab adopted by Grogan, a columnist for the Philadelphia Inquirer, and his wife. Their idea was to give them a taste of parenthood, but the dog proved to be a hyperactive handful. He wreaks havoc, gets kicked out of obedience school and gets even worse when the children begin to arrive, yet becomes an indispensable part of the family."

So...
I assume Wilson will play Grogan and Aniston will play his wife. The Devil Wears Prada director David Frankel will direct, so maybe this will be a doggone good film.

I absolutely loved this book, especially because I am also the owner of a 93 pound 8 year old yellow lab who still acts like a pup. I have experienced all of the same things as the author plus some and I am so excited to see the humor come forth in a movie. I hope it is as good as the book, although movies usually aren't.

It sounds like a bad Beethoven movie to me but with a prettier cast

I've never loved him and just tolerated him really. But "You Me and Dupree" pushed me over the "hate line". :rant: Can't stand him now!

I don't think I can watch it - I loved the book but read it a few weeks after putting my own childhood dog down. I got a little beyond the normal reaction. I'm afraid my current dog would not appreciate all the clinging i'd be doing after...

Yuck. I don't care for Aniston and can't stomach the Butterscotch Stallion. And this book? Just the excerpts give me cavities.

The book was cute and funny, but I can't see Aniston playing the wife...not sure about Owen either, though. I agree with Neuroticone.

I agree! I really don't want to see Owen Wilson in this. He bugs me. I did adore the book. And like everyone else, cried like a baby :cry: I think it's the first book to make me cry.

I love this book. Laughed, cried and related about Marley is like my crazy retriever. Who will play Marley? I think my dog should she is almost as bad as Marley.
