Yakin also wrote the script along with Sheldon Lettich (Rambo III, Lionheart, Double Impact).

 Inspired by true events, Max tells the story of a Belgian Shepherd working in Afghanistan alongside Marines. When his handler is killed, the man’s devastated family adopts the dog — erratic and still suffering from the traumas of war — who ends up bonding with and helping their troubled 14-year-old son, Justin (played by Josh Wiggins).

Max will begin production on May 5 and wrap around June 20 in the Charlotte area.

Boaz Yakin (Remember the Titans) will write and direct the film.

Wiggins is currently earning raves for his performance in Hellion and he will soon be seen in the thriller Lost in the Sun.

Max will arrive in theaters in 2015.

Josh Wiggins will star in 'Max', to be filmed in Charlotte, North Carolina.
