PUPS ALONE: A CHRISTMAS PERIL (A. Merkin, 2018) (completed?)

Postby Jox on 25 Jul 2017, 11:00

The Linkedin page of writer Jason Gruich describes it as "Home Alone meets Homeward Bound"

I assume it's a really short cameo

Ouch :cry:
Eric Roberts in a a pet movie is always bad omen (he has done countless of shitty pieces of shitty crap with David DeCoteau). Let's hope it's just a teeny tiny cameo as you say.

Eric Roberts has always been careless and said himself he just wants to act and work.

But I saw it coming, it was bound to happen if look at the career at some of the biggest stars such as Gena Rowlands and many others (names escape me but I know it's never been unusual), they all made this kind of Hallmark TV movies and their filmographies were blown up with tons of unmemorable titles and cameos in the last decade or two decades of their careers...

Dolph is also willing to try out what he wasn't comfortable to in the 1990's and 2000's but the offers of the market are terrible, tasteless projects, even for family movies which I have nothing against, if they're not cynically taking people for brainwashed dummies like network American TV does.

I guess this is an actor's audition "tape"

I guess I'll just watch Dolph's scene(s) and then put on the original and actually enjoyable HOME ALONE instead...

I just finished a four day shoot of our class member Brandon Burrows feature film "Pups Alone! A Christmas Peril". Brandon wrote the story, co wrote the script, produced the film, and took a small role in it. He cast me and two other members of our class, Steven Bennett and Chris Zuckert in roles that he specifically wrote for us. The film includes Dolph Lungren and Eric Roberts in major roles. It's a take off of the popular movie "Home Alone" with dogs as the heros. I play the father of the lead male role, granfather to his daughter who is also a leading player.

Can't be any worse than either star's low points and the filmmakers attached have shown skills while honing films of various degrees (DTV, Telefilms, Theatrical).

I knowmany here were underwhelmed with Merkin & Dolph's outing Altitude but we can only see.

Keith David is also in the cast apparently, and Lionsgate is the distributor...

I don't know what happened to this one (shot almost 2 years ago in between Dolph's AQUAMAN shooting periods) but it might come out of the blue when we least expect it...

Did I ever mention that "Pups" (pronounces "Poops") in German is an alternative and kinda childish word for a fart? ;-)
