For Doberman lovers, here comes some interesting news.
A press release has announced that a remake of the 1972 Doberman Gang movie is in the works. The new action heist film will include involvement by popular dog behaviorist, Caesar Millan and will be produced by Darren Raegan.
The original Doberman Gang movie was so popular it spawned three sequels, The Daring Dobermans, The Amazing Dobermans, and the lesser-known tv movie, Alex and the Doberman Gang. You can watch the original movie trailer video below.
The movie plot is basically a “gang” of 6 Doberman dogs trained to perform bank robberies. It’s a fun concept and a new version could really be exciting for action fans and dog lovers. Unfortunately, there is a concern about the “Dalmation effect”, where dogs become popular because of a movie, and it encourages backyard breeders.
Caesar Millan comments, “This was one of my favorite movies as a boy, and it’s an honor to be part of a film that brings this great story back to life. Watching the Power of the Pack on the big screen is a dream come true for me.”
I can’t wait for this one at the theater. What do you think? Did you like the Doberman Gang movies?
