If you were around in the ’70s then you surely remember 1974’s Benji movie, in which a scruffy pooch won the hearts of everybody who watched it.
Next week Netflix premieres a remake, by Brandon Camp, son of the original director, Joe Camo.
Aussie Angus Sampson also has a role.
A modern day retelling of the classic, the story of Benji follows one orphaned puppy and Carter and Frankie, two capricious New Orleans school kids who strike up a friendship with the tenacious street dog. When danger befalls them and they end up kidnapped by robbers who are in over their heads, Benji and his scruffy sidekick come to the rescue.
Friday March 16 on Netflix.
