The film marks the directorial debut of out writer Mike White, whose credits include School of Rock, The Good Girl, Chuck & Buck, Orange County, and Paramount's upcoming Nacho Libre, starring Jack Black.

The story centers on Peggy, a happy-go-lucky secretary who lives alone with her beloved dog, Pencil. But when Pencil unexpectedly dies, Peggy embarks on a journey of transformation. No start date is set. (Reuters)
