I have another picture from the film that I was explicitly told not to share... Not just yet anyway. All I'll say is that it's a side of Dolph we've never seen... :lol: :lol: :lol:

Robert, his teenage daughter Jenna and their trusty and special border collie Charlie (Jerry O’Connell) make the move to a new neighborhood, right before Christmas. Upon arriving, Robert meets his next door neighbor Holly, and her sassy and border collie Gidget (Jennifer Love Hewitt). Before the sparks can fly, they are set upon my Robert’s conniving and obnoxious next door neighbor and project manager Victor (Dolph Lundgren), his neighborhood bully bulldog “Vinnie P” and the sycophantic sidekick Chihuahua “Jose” (Rob Schneider). Victor discovers Roberts latest invention, a dog collar that translates canine thoughts into words. Victor hires two thieves to steal the invention

I tried to shorten the synopsis a little :lol:

EDIT : i'm sure it's a photoshop thing, but still : Dolph has a christmas sweater with pooping reindeers.

I have the feeling they modified the project along the way, added the new voice actors and did some reshoots recently...

Berlin First-Look Photo: Dolph Lundgren in 'Pups Alone' (Exclusive)

The Christmas film — which VMI is shopping at Berlin's European Film Market — also stars Jennifer Love Hewitt, Rob Schneider, Keith David, Nicholas Turturro and Eric Roberts.
Dolph Lundgren might not appear to be the happiest man alive, but at least he's looking exceptionally festive in this first-look still from upcoming live action family action comedy Pups Alone.

The He-Man, Rocky and Expendables star joins Jennifer Love Hewitt (9-1-1), Rob Schneider (Deuce Bigalow), Keith David (The Princess and the Frog), Nicholas Turturro (BlacKkKlansman) and Eric Roberts (Runaway Train) in the film, directed by Alex Merkin (Altitude) from an original concept and screenplay by Brandon Burrows and Jason Gruich.

Introduced to sellers at the 2020 Virtual AFM by VMI, the film sees Lundgren play the primary antagonist Victor VonManure, the conniving and obnoxious next-door neighbour to the inventor of a dog collar that translates canine thoughts into words. When Victor hires two inept thieves to steal the invention while the inventor is away on a company ski trip, the neighbourhood dogs catch wind of the plan and join forces to set up a house of horrors to stop the would-be robbers.

Brandon Burrows (The Last Son of Isaac Lemay) of Firebrand and Courtney Lauren Penn (The Last Son of Isaac Lemay) of Boundless Pictures produce, with Andre Relis of VMI and Jack Bowyer (Gallowwalkers) serving as executive producers.

‘Pups Alone’ Cast Expands With Rob Schneider, Dolph Lundgren and Nicholas Turturro
https://variety.com/2021/film/news/pups ... 234910130/

“Rob is an absolute comedic genius,” Burrows said. “I can’t wait to share Dolph and Nick’s brilliant performances in ‘Pups.’ Dolph gives a powerhouse performance. Couldn’t be prouder to have them in the film.”

Burrows also serves as producer for the Alex Merkin-directed film. Courtney Lauren Penn, Andre Relis and Jack Bowyer are executive producers.

Pups Alone” is in negotiation for a North American Distribution deal. VMI first introduced it to buyers at the 2020 Virtual AFM Market and will continue sales at the 2021 Virtual European Film Market during the first week of March.

Just the fact that it took 3-4 years to complete may be an indication, but in terms of the domestic rights, it seems that they waited for the movie to be ready before shopping it around since there were surprisingly no pre-sales.

It's weird how they're trying to make it seem like it's a new production when they filmed in 2017 for the most part...
