Betty on the News: Real-Life Story of a Dog Named Nubs to be Made into a Movie
If you enjoyed “Marley & Me” then keep an eye peeled for another great story about man’s best friend!
Warner Bros. is once again teaming up with The Bucket List writer Justin Zackham to pen and produce a feel-good true tale of a dog and a U.S. Marine based on a book titled Nubs: A Marine, a Mutt and a Miracle.
Nubs was a stray pup that Maj. Brian Dennis rescued while serving in Iraq. He nursed the dog back to health and organized to have him shipped back to America after his tour ended.
The story of the reunited buddies took the world by storm in the fall, with both Dennis and Nubs putting in appearances on Today, The Ellen DeGeneres Show and The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien, and more.
“It’s a story that parents can take their kids to but that adults can also go to and appreciate,” Zackham stated. “It’s one of those movies that everyone can take something from.” (The Hollywood Reporter)
