According to the recently released pledge by NBC confirms to air the “Marley & Me” pilot TV series will act as a sequel to a 2008 based comedy film starring Owen Wilson and the ‘Friends’ star Jennifer Aniston. This was a box office hit film with the earnings of more than $243 million USD and had swept several awards as well.
Some thought that the movie ‘Marley & Me’ was based upon the bestselling novel named as John Grogan. Moreover, the full script will be authored by the famous Emmy-Winner script writer Jenny Bicks. She is a famous writer, especially for the film series “Sex and the city” that ran from 1998 to 2004.
The movie revolves around a couple who adopted a stray puppy dubbed Marlye and considered parenting. The movie stars include Kathleen Turner, Eric Dane, Nathan Gamble, Alan Arkin and Haley Bennet.
The screenplay of the movie showed that the couple was forced to adopt the puppy when it landed on their doorsteps. The puppy later became so much attached not only with the Grogan family, but also with the other dog and their owners in the neighborhood. Though, unlike her ancestor, this Marley would help depict the problems that are faced by the Grogan family and how they interact with their neighbors and their problems. Furthermore, one of the NBC spokespersons reported that this TV series will start off from where the film had been left.
The last scene of the film was the one where the featured couple Aniston and Wilson, along with their three children aged 6, 13 and 16 had moved back to Florida so that Wilson could have his day job as a Newspaper columnist. More details concerning the TV series are yet to be announced by the creators.
It’s not yet confirmed that the star cast for Anitson and Wilson’s role in the upcoming series will be replaced by Jenny and John Grogan. Moreover, Wilson was reported to have starred in “She’s Funny That Way” which is a comedy film by Peter Bogdanovich with Imogen Poots. This was privately screened at the Toronto Film Festival.
