Adapted from James Bowen’s much-loved, best-selling book, A Street Cat Named Bob tells the moving and life-affirming true story of the unlikely friendship between young homeless busker James Bowen (Luke Treadaway), 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, the movie was shot 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)
