"Melwood Pictures and Exodus Film Group have optioned the rights to magician and illusionist Nicholas Nightís computer animated/live action feature film Pavlovís Dog. The synopsis for the film revolves around, ďPavlov, an uptight flea from out-of-town that catches a greyhound to the big city in order to claim his inheritance... a canine 'property'. Once there, Pavlov finds himself waging a suburban war against the rambunctious, untidy and comical misfits who plague his life and mess up his neighborhood. Although Pavlov eventually succeeds in his quest to create an orderly Utopia, along the way he discovers that as a parasite in paradise what gave his life richness and diversity was the very thing he destroyed." Veteran Disney animator Leon Joosen is set to direct Pavlov's Dog, working with a script from Nicholas Night and former Seinfeld writer Pat Hazell.
