Alan Arkin Joining Aniston and Wilson in ‘Marley and Me’

Honestly, if anyone clicks on this article I will be shocked and in jubilation as I gave away the entire story in the headline, but let me repeat myself for those that didn’t let it all sink in.

Alan Arkin is joining Owen Wilson and Jennifer Aniston in the feature film adaptation of the John Grogan bestseller Marley and Me for director David Frankel.

In the film Wilson plays a Philadelphia newspaper columnist who decides with his wife to adopt a dog to give them a taste of parenthood. The incorrigible Labrador retriever is a hyperactive handful, turning their lives upside down. Arkin will play the editor of the newspaper.

The latest draft of the script was penned by The Lookout writer/director Scott Frank and filming is scheduled to begin this spring.
