Togo and Seppala: un nuovo live-action in preparazione in casa Disney

Secondo indiscrezioni, la Disney starebbe sviluppando un nuovo film in live-action intitolato Togo and Seppala, con protagonisti un coraggioso cane dal slitta e il suo padrone. Il progetto è ancora in fase di studio ma secondo le indiscrezioni avrebbe già uno sceneggiatore.

Secondo Tracking Board, lo studio avrebbe ingaggiato Tom Flynn per lo script. La trama dovrebbe ruotare attorno ad una corsa nota come Grande Corsa della Misericordia (Great Race of Mercy), nella quale i cani da slitta ebbero un ruolo fondamentale nel trasporto di un importante siero curativo, percorrendo in condizioni difficilissime quasi 700 miglia per salvare la città da una epidemia. Il progetto non ha ancora un produttore ufficiale, ma sarebbe sotto supervisione per conto dello studio da parte di Jessica Virtue e Louie Provost.

Bello! Speriamo lo facciano! Ci piacciono queste storie...
La stessa storia che ha ispirato "Balto".
Balto 4?

In pratica il remake live-action di "Balto" lo sta facendo la Disney... tongue.gif Comunque, a parte gli scherzi, si stanno basando su tutt'altra parte della storia per fare il film: Togo è il cane che in "Balto" è stato reso come cattivo con il nome di Steele; chissà se si occuperà anche del prosieguo della vicenda non trattato nel film d'animazione.

Here are some of the priority movie projects I heard about:

Don Quixote, from a Billy Ray script; Lady and the Tramp; The Paper Magician; Stargirl, to be directed by Julia Hart; and Togo, to be directed by Ericson Core.

Il film sarà diretto da Ericson Core e andrà in onda sulla piattaforma streaming che la Disney intende lanciare.
Le riprese iniziano il 24 settembre 2018 ad Alberta in Canada e terminano a marzo 2019.

Production Start Date Set For Exclusive Disney Streaming Service Film ‘Togo’

Just a little over two years ago it was reported that Disney was in development on a live-action movie about two of the key figures in the 1925 Nome Serum Run — sled dog Togo and sled driver Leonhard Seppala, titled Togo. Since then news on the project has been quiet, until now.

We have learned that the film will begin production on September 24th. Filming will take place in place in Alberta, Canada and is expected to wrap sometime in early March.

In the 1925 Nome Serum Run, dog sleds transported diphtheria serum over nearly 700 miles to save the city from an epidemic, and this film focuses on two key figures, sled dog Togo and driver Leonhard Seppala. Togo was born sickly and small, and required special care from Seppala’s wife. He only grew to around 48 lbs. as an adult, which is considered too small to make a lead dog. But Togo proved himself with his spirit and tenacity by jumping through a kennel window and running miles back to Seppala after he tried to give him away. During Seppala’s runs, Togo would follow the teams and lead them off the trail in charges against reindeer; Seppala had no choice but to put him in a harness to keep the other dog’s on task, and to his surprise, Togo calmed down immediately and shared the lead position by the end of his first run. Most people close to the story consider Balto the backup dog, as Togo led Seppala’s sled through the most dangerous territory of the run. In fact, Seppala was angry hat Hollywood had wanted to do a film that about Balto and the run without any mention of Togo. Now, there’s an opportunity to set the story straight, and give Togo the scratchbehind-the-ear he deserves.

Togo will be directed by Ericson Core, Who directed Disney’s Invincible in 2006, from a script by Tom Flynn (Gifted). Doug Jones is on board as a producer. The film is expected to be ready to debut for Disney’s streaming service in Fall 2019.
Il film si intitolerà semplicemente "Togo" e Willem Dafoe ne sarà protagonista.

Willem Dafoe to Star in Disney Adventure Movie 'Togo' (Exclusive)

Ericson Core is directing the project for Disney's streaming service.
Willem Dafoe, who was nominated for an Oscar for his work in last year’s The Florida Project, has signed on to star in Togo, a Disney movie about a famous and dangerous sled-dog relay.

Ericson Core, who directed the Mark Wahlberg drama Invincible as well as the recent remake of Point Break, is helming the movie, which is being developed for the Disney streaming service.

Togo will be a live-action feature centering on two key figures in the 1925 serum run to Nome, Alaska, also known as the Great Race of Mercy, in which dog-sled teams relayed to transport diphtheria antitoxin serum through harsh conditions over nearly 700 miles to save the town from an epidemic.

Balto was the dog who received acclaim from the life-saving run and whose heroism was popularized at the time; he even received the movie treatment via an animated feature in 1995 from Steven Spielberg’s Amblin.

But in effect it was Togo and his owner, Leonhard Seppala, that traversed the most dangerous part of the journey, facing temperatures of 30 degrees below zero in gale-force winds.

Dafoe will play Seppala in this tale of an unlikely friendship between man and dog

Tom Flynn wrote the script for the project, which is being produced by Kim Zubick.

Jessica Virtue and Louie Provost are overseeing Togo for the studio.

Disney’s streaming service will launch in late 2019. The studio aims to have a mix of original and exclusive movies and TV series along with its vast library.

Dafoe just wrapped shooting The Last Thing He Wanted, the latest film from Mudbound filmmaker Dee Rees, which also stars Anne Hathaway and Ben Affleck. He stars as VIncent Van Gogh in drama At Eternity's Gate, directed by Julian Schnabel, which will be released later this year.

Dafoe, who is repped by CAA and Circle of Confusion, will also appear in Aquaman, Warners’ DC Entertainment-based movie that opens December.
