Behind the Scenes of DogMan

The movie Dogman was film in Newark, New Jersey and in the virtual production studio in Essone, France. The production or filming has no problems but must of the attention was on the director Lec Besson for his controversies and previous accusations that until today has had no repercussion in the filmmaker. Also is impressive the amount of dogs that were used in the filming of the movie making more realistic the scene and also complicated. Dogman is a movie that will bring to the big screen director Lec Besson with a hard story and great performances.

Despite all the accusation that director Lec Besson has face during the past years is incredible to see a movie directed by him again, Besson is a director that has memorable movies such as The Fifth Element and Leon: The Professional, two movies that has gained him acclaimed and also has positioned him one of the greatest French filmmaker, for that reason now with Dogman, the director is giving action, traumas, love for dogs, a story that audience is going to love for the dogs and the plot or is going to hate probably because will make no sense for them, no matter what it seems that the story is cruel with action scenes and with dogs running all over the city just to satisfy his master. Hope it is a good story and that audience can enjoy the performances, the direction and obviously the dogs.
