Warning: unparalleled levels of dog-flavoured jokes in the following sentence. Well, how could we resist when Peter Sarsgaard decides to take a ruff road and unleash himself in Mike White’s barking new comedy?

And… We’re done. Sarsgaard has indeed signed up to star in Year Of The Dog alongside Laura Dern, John C Reilly and Regina King, who we last saw straining to be funny in Miss Congeniality 2.

Hopefully King will have better luck with Dog, the previously announced film that marks White’s first stab at directing. The School Of Rock scribe already has former Saturday Night Live performer Molly Shannon starring as a secretary devoted to her canine chum, Pencil. Her life changes forever when Pencil heads off to the great dog basket in the sky.

White will bark – we slipped! – his first directorial orders in June in LA.
