J. Todd Harris (The Kids Are All Right) and Clark Peterson (Monster) are producing the film, which The Solution Entertainment is shopping to foreign buyers at the European Film Market. Nick Guthe, who is directing from his adapted script, also will produce.

CAA and WME Global are co-representing U.S. rights.

Hayek will play Abigail Thomas, while Travolta will play her husband. After the accident, he is forced to live in an isolated institution to control the side effects of his near-death accident. In order to be close to her husband, Abigail reinvents her life and moves from New York City to the small country town, with her new family of three dogs.

A Three Dog Life, published in 2006 by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, received numerous awards and recently resurfaced in popularity, reaching No. on The New York Times Bestseller list in September 2013.
