Dangerous Women / Pitbull niebezpieczne kobiety (TVP), which set a record with 2.1 m admissions during the first three weeks in cinemas and 2.8 m tickets sold in 2016; and the first installment Pitbull. New Order / Pitbull. Nowe porządki, which had 1.4 m admission from 22 January 2016 through December 2016. Vega based both feature films on the crime series Pitbull produced in 2005-2008 for TVP. The final budget of the film has not been announced. Vega announced that he will not be coming back to the third part in February 2017, due to a conflict with the producer over casting.

"I come to the set of Pitbull 3 as one of the biggest challenges in my life. I will have to face the gigantic financial success of the previous two parts as well as the legend and perfection of the TV series from 12 years ago. I am trying to make a crime thriller the best way I know how, without imitating the style of my great predecessor" Pasikowski said. Pitbull. The Last Dog will open in Polish cinemas in 2018 distributed by Kino Świat. Production information: Ent One ul.
