Josh Lucas to star in Red Dog
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
Remember when Josh Lucas was going to be the next big actor? What happened? Well, he has just signed on to star in the upcoming, Australian produced film RED DOG. His co-star will be an Australian kelpie dog named Koko. Technically, Koko is the lead star and Lucas is his sidekick. I’m being hard on Lucas, but the story is actually pretty good for a family film and revolves around a dog (Koko) that brings together a mining community in the 70’s and 80’s. Kriv Stenders will be directing.
I’m a sucker for dog movies, so I’m looking forward to this. I’m not familiar with the story, so I’m not sure how a dog can unite a mining community, but I can already tell this is going to be a sappy tear-jerker.
