Inspired by true events, Max tells the story of a Belgian Shepherd working in Afghanistan alongside Marines. When his handler is killed, the man’s devastated family adopts the dog — erratic and still suffering from the traumas of war — who ends up bonding with and helping their troubled 14-year-old son, Justin (Josh Wiggins).
Thomas Haden Church (Spider-man 3) plays the tough father, who is a former Marine and idolized his older son, while Jay Hernandez (Hostel, Grindhouse) plays a Marine who is also a dog trainer, and Lauren Graham (Bad Santa) plays Justin’s mom.
Max will begin production on May 5 and wrap around June 20 in the Charlotte area.
Boaz Yakin (Remember the Titans) wrote and directed the film.
Max will arrive in theaters on June 26.
