The film adaptation of James Bowen’s much-loved, best-selling book. Starring Luke Treadaway (Unbroken, Clash of the Titans) as James Bowen, ‘A Street Cat Named Bob’ tells the moving and life-affirming true story of the unlikely friendship between a young homeless busker, James Bowen, and the stray ginger cat named Bob who changed his life.
Also starring Ruta Gedmintas (The Strain, The Incident) Joanne Froggatt (Downton Abbey, Filth) Anthony Head (Buffy The Vampire Slayer) and (of course) Bob, filming took place over six weeks in London, mainly in Covent Garden where James and Bob used to busk.
The film is directed by Roger Spottiswoode (Tomorrow Never Dies, Under Fire, Air America, Turner and Hooch), with a script from Tim John (Dr. Jekyll and Ms. Hyde) and Maria Nation (Ice Bound).
