The animated adventure drama is co-written and directed by Aaron Woodley and co-directed by Dimos Vrysellas. Here's what we know about the film so far:
'Arctic Dogs' is slated for a November 1 release.
The story revolves around Swifty (Renner) who works in the mailroom of the Arctic Blast Delivery Service but yearns to become Top Dog in the Arctic's star husky couriers.
To prove his mettle, he commandeers one of the sleds on a secret mission and ends up stumbling upon a hidden fortress overseen by the nefarious Otto Von Walrus (John Cleese).
Swifty discovers Otto Von Walrus' villainous plan to drill beneath the snow-packed surface to unleash masses of ancient gas to melt the Arctic and become the world's supreme ruler.
To stop his evil plans, Swifty enlists the help of his friends: PB (Alec Baldwin), a neurotic polar bear, Lemmy (James Franco), an albatross, Jade Fox (Heidi Klum), a brainy engineer in Leopold (Omar Sy) and Bertha (Heidi Klum).
