Behind the Scenes with Richard Gere – Hachi: A Dog’s Tale

Our star and co-producer, Richard Gere, was my first choice from the beginning. The story of Hachikō is really about the deep spiritual connection between kindred spirits, and Richard’s strong beliefs and charitable works gave integrity and strength to the character of Parker.

Add his respect for Asian culture, and there was no need to even consider a second or third choice!
This film was made that much more monumental thanks to Richard Gere’s performance and we can’t be happier with all he’s done for Hachi: A Dog’s Tale.
