Actor Dave Bautista is in talks to star in Netflix's Unleashed with brothers Jim Kehoe and Brian Kehoe, who previously wrote Blockers, to pen the script. Filmmaker Jeff Tomsic, best known for directing the 2018 comedy film Tag, is set to direct the upcoming project.

The film will centre on a police officer (Bautista) and Boomer, his best friend dog that is capable of sniffing out any crime. When Boomer tragically dies in the line of duty, the heartbroken cop vows to never work with another dog again, until he ends up working with Zeus. The film is expected to get all dog lovers excited. 

While further details are unknown about Unleashed, more is expected to be revealed soon. Alongside penning the script, the Kehoe brothers will also serve as executive producers for the upcoming project from Netflix. 

They are also set to pen the script for Paramount's tennis comedy, Double Fault, starring Rebel Wilson which will revolve around a former tennis player who attempts to redeem herself by coaching a young player.

Bautista is also set to star in Rian Johnson's Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery later this year in an undisclosed role, which will debut on Netflix as well. Outside of Netflix, Bautista will star in next year's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 where he will reprise his role as Drax the Destroyer. The actor is also set to return as Rabban in Dune: Part Two, which is expected to debut in theatres on November 17, 2023.

Bautista will produce Unleashed alongside Jonathan Meisner with Chris Bender and Jake Weiner from Good Fear. There is no release date yet for the project. Unleashed will premiere exclusively on Netflix.
