Featured Animal Action

In the scene when the actors chase a bad guy and a dog on a chain barks at them as they run by, trainers used a professional personal protection god, who has been trained to attack and bark on command. When the actors land on their feet and run, the trainer cued the dog to bark, who was on a fifteen foot leash. 

In the scene when the actor falls into the chicken coop with chickens surrounding him in the coop, two trainers sat inside the coop shelter holding three hens each. After the stuntman fell inside the coop, the trainers released the hens out of the two doors that led to wired coop. The stuntman was instructed on how to stay clear of the chickens so he wouldn’t fall step on them. During breaks the chickens stayed inside a coop that was cooler and had water. 

In the scene where the actors talk amid a flurry of cops and cop cars and we see two K-9 dogs in the background, trainers played the part of cops, while holding their dogs. Dogs were given water between takes. 

The alligator was created by CGI.
