Strays is a really funny, new feature that absolutely should not be seen by kids. It’s rude and riotous, and one of the films best placed to give you a good laugh this Summer. To mark its release, we spoke to producers Phil Lord and Chris Miller, who talk about marketing a genre often aimed at kids, but instead for an older crowd, and just how game leading stars Will Ferrell and Jamie Foxx were with this entertaining screenplay.
The duo also speak about a character they believe could be their most evil villain to date, across all of their movies – while we also look ahead to forthcoming projects, such as the next Spider-Verse production, as well as Project Hail Mary.
Watch the full interview here with Phil Lord and Chris Miller:
Abandoned on the mean city streets by his lowlife owner, Doug, a naive but lovable dog named Reggie falls in with a fast-talking, foul-mouthed Boston Terrier and his gang of strays. Determined to seek revenge, Reggie and his new canine pals embark on an epic adventure to get him home and make Doug pay for his dirty deed.
Strays is released on August 18th
