HOLLYWOOD – New spin off comedy Hooch and Hooch has lost star Tom Hanks over what is being called by the studio ‘creative differences’.

Turner and Hooch was the best loved dog/cop comedy of July, 1989 and so when rumors of a remake began to circulate – provisionally titled Hooch and Hooch – it was hoped that the original stars could be reunited. Beasley the Dog had sadly passed away and now it looks like comedian turned actor Tom Hanks will also be passing on the project.

A studio insider told the Studio Exec EXCLUSIVELY:

It isn’t Tom’s fault. He came to the project quite late on. The script had been written and some of the story-boarding too. He has a lot of affection for the original film, but when he read the script he just didn’t think his role was big enough to warrant the time commitment. And so he went and did Bridge of Spies instead.

The synopsis for the film reads:

Hooch is a large sloppery police dog who plays by the book, but his world is about to be turned upside down by his identical twin brother Hooch, a low down street dog. When they both become embroiled in the murder of a local politician mixed up in VIP sex parties and the sale of a corridor of land for a high speed rail link, they must team up to save the day.

The script was written by Nic Pizzolatto and will be directed by Bret Ratner.

Meanwhile James Belushi has confirmed the long-awaited sequel to the second most loved dog/cop comedy of July, 1989 K-9.

Hooch and Hooch will be released in 2017. And K-10 will be released 5 seconds earlier.

BRUSSELS – Jean Claude Van Damme and his loveable Chihuahua Champion-Man are currently filming the Turner and Hooch remake in various locations across Europe.

The sure-fire winning combo of wise cracking cop and loveable dog concept movie is set to rise again and the Studio Exec managed to catch up with both stars.

No one has ever seen action like this. This is a whole new genre of entertainment. It’s beyond your imagination.

Could you break it down a little for those of us who may need help then?

Have you ever seen a dog rip out someone’s throat while firing a semi automatic machine gun?

I don’t think so.

See! I told you. You didn’t imagine it. I put that in there. That’s just one of the images you will see for the first time. Champion-Man will bring new depths of excitement to modern cinema.

What is the actual story this time around?

The REAL story is that I was watching the movie Taken with Champion-Man and we both agreed that it was weak as cabbage pee and that it’d be vastly improved with a real martial artist and a real dog. I know for a FACT Neeson could never do the splits in a time of crisis. He’s an ass biscuit. Neither could he train a small dog to steal a Vespa with nothing but a hand gesture. Do you agree with these statements?

Well…I know Liam quite well, I’m fairly sure he couldn’t do the splits.

Thank you. That will look good on the poster. I must leave you now. Champion-Man must tinkle then feed.
