After the success of the new Karate Kid movie, Hollywood is likely looking for lots of family martial arts films. May I throw out an awesome suggestion? Cast my dog Graham as THE KARATE DOG! (I know - have you ever heard a better idea in your entire life??) As evidence of his kung fu skill, I direct you to the Karate Kid-esque pose he's making here with minimal help from his dad.
This can be a very low-budget film. Graham works for cheap. Let's go over a few of the pros and cons of such a making this film with my pooch in the lead role:
PRO: People love dogs.
CON: My dog has no real karate or kung fu skills.
PRO: You could use the pun "Kung Fu-N!" on the movie poster.
CON: Graham is perhaps the laziest dog on the planet. He has been deemed "unmotivable" after his one-on-one with Tony Robbins.
PRO: Look at how fluffy he is!
CON: Look at how flabby he is.
PRO: During downtime, the cast & crew will be able to pet him and attempt to pick him up (bulky body may not make this possible).
CON: If you turn your back for one second, he will likely devour everything on the Craft Services table and put the production further in debt.
PRO: Dude, I dunno. I've exhausted all his good qualities.
CON: Graham's range of emotion only goes from "hungry" to "sleepy" to "Oh-my-God-I-have-to-poop."
