Oh! Heavenly Dog Is Getting A Remake

According to THR Fox 2000 is remaking Oh! Heavenly Dog, an early Chevy Chase comedy, with Tim Hill attached to helm the feature.

The 1980 comedy centered on a private investigator who is killed when he discovers a dead body. With his soul’s future at stake — it’s not decided if he’s going to Heaven or Hell — he gets a chance for some redemption work, coming back to Earth as a dog in order to solve his own murder.





Hill, who launched the Alvin and the Chipmunks franchise for the studio and was one of the key developers behind SpongeBob Squarepants, will write the script with Dave Johnson.

Temple Hill, the production shingle behind The Maze Runner franchise as well this summer’s Paper Towns, and Brandon Camp, the son of the original movie’s director and co-writer, Joe Camp, are producing the remake.

Chase starred in the movie with Jane Seymour and Omar Sharif. The dog was played by a descendent of classic film canine Benji.

Hill’s Chipmunks grossed over $360 million when it was released in 2007. He also directed Hop, Universal and Illumination’s 2011 Easter Bunny-themed movie that starred Russell Brand and James Marsden. He is currently writing the pilot for The April O’Neil Files for Nickelodeon.

Temple Hill's latest movie, Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, opens September 18.
