Louis C.K.’s upcoming animated project, which sounds like the Toy Story of dogs, has settled on a no-nonsense name. The A.V. Club reports that The Secret Life of Pets will explore the mischief household animals get into when their owners leave. The film is set for a July 8, 2016, release. Joining C.K., reportedly, are Kevin Hart, Eric Stonestreet, Ellie Kemper, Hannibal Buress, Lake Bell, Bobby Moynihan, Jenny Slate, and Albert Brooks, among others. Chris Renaud will direct, and hopefully — given the fact Hart plays a stupidly cute bunny — cobble together a real gem.
