Enzo(voiced by Kevin Costner) knows he is different from other dogs: a philosopher with a nearly human soul, he has educated himself by watching television extensively, and by listening very closely to the words of his master, Denny Swift(Milo Ventimiglia), a race car driver. Enzo has gained tremendous insight into the human condition, and he sees that life, like racing, isn't simply about going fast. On the eve of his death, Enzo takes stock of his life, recalling all that he and his family have been through. He recalls the life lessons he has learned from his race car driving owner. The film follows Denny and the loves of his life - his wife, Eve (Amanda Seyfried), their young daughter Zoe (Ryan Kiera Armstrong), and ultimately, his true best friend, Enzo.
Universal Pictures acquired the rights to the novel in July 2009, for Patrick Dempsey to star in. The project has not been able to find a director. After the project came to a halt with Universal Studios, Disney acquired the rights in January 2016. The film adaptation will be produced by Neal Moritz.
In 2017, screenwriter Mark Bomback revealed that the project was now set up at Fox 2000, saying, "I'm hoping the third time's the charm, and I'm optimistic that next year will be when it finally goes into production."
