THE ART OF RACING IN THE RAIN by Garth Stein
Status: In development, still needs a director.
Who's involved: Patrick Dempsey is supposed to star and as of December 2011, Unstoppable's Mark Bomback is set to pen the script.
Why you should read the book first: Unlike other dog-focused stories, The Art ofB Racing in the Rain is told from the perspective of the dog, as opposed to the owner. The story of race car driver Denny Swift is told to us by his faithful dog Enzo. It's a truly charming, touching story that will make you want to hug your dog (or get a dog if you don't already have one), and wonder how your own pet might tell your story, if given the opportunity. While it should prove to be especially tricky to adapt the novel to screen while keeping the focus on Enzo's perspective, the book is a real page-turner and a great read. It's impossible not to fall in love with Enzo, a dog who, in addition to loving his owner, is also studying humanity in preparation for his next life, which he hopes will be a human one.
