ContentFilm International has acquired worldwide rights to The Dog Squad: 3D to be directed by Les Mayfield (Flubber Blue Streak Miracle on 34th Street Encino Man). Steve Carpenter wrote the original script. Voice-over and cast will be announced in the coming weeks. Principal photography is due to start in late summer 2010 in Canada.
The film stars an overweight and lazy Bulldog (Donut) a disgraced former Police Dog (Clint) a sassy Lady Mutt (Samantha) an overly timid Guide-Dog (Bert) and a shamelessly womanizing Chihuahua (Hector) in a live-action family-oriented adventure.
 The movie is ContentFilm’s first 3D production. Rick Benattar (Ironclad Shoot ’Em Up) is the producer.
  Mayfield says “Three of my five best friends are dogs; they always laugh at my jokes. I’ve found that dogs often have more humanity than most humans.”
Benattar says “Les is a great filmmaker with a real eye for comedy.  This is a true family film one everyone can take the kids to and after all who doesn't love dogs in 3D?”
 CFI’s president Carmichael says “The Dog Squad: 3D has just got something extra special about it.  We've put together a studio level production at an independent price and its super high concept.  It's a wonderfully strong idea that is really capturing everyone's imagination.  We're very excited to be working with Les and Rick.” ContentFilm International
