A Street Cat named Bob

Malta Independent - - CINEMA -

A Street Cat Named Bob is based on the much-loved, in­ter­na­tional best-sell­ing book. Star­ring Luke Tread­away (Un­bro­ken, Clash of the Ti­tans, Olivier Award Win­ner for The Cu­ri­ous In­ci­dent of the Dog in the Night-Time) as James Bowen and with Bob as Bob, ‘ 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 who changed his life.

When James Bowen found an in­jured, gin­ger street cat curled up in the hall­way of his shel­tered ac­com­mo­da­tion, he had no idea just how much his life was about to change. James was liv­ing hand to mouth on the streets of Lon­don and the last thing he needed was a pet. Yet James couldn’t re­sist help­ing the strik­ingly in­tel­li­gent tom cat, whom he quickly chris­tened Bob. He slowly nursed Bob back to health and then sent the cat on his way, imag­in­ing he would never see him again. But Bob had other ideas. Soon the two were in­sep­a­ra­ble and their di­verse, comic and oc­ca­sion­ally dan­ger­ous ad­ven­tures would trans­form both their lives, slowly heal­ing the scars of each other’s trou­bled pasts.

Also star­ring Ruta Ged­mintas (The Strain, The In­ci­dent) Joanne Frog­gatt (Down­ton Abbey, Filth) and An­thony Head (Buffy The Vam­pire Slayer), 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). The film is pro­duced by Adam Rol­ston for Shoot­ing Script Films and will be the com­pany’s de­but re­lease. Damian Jones is an ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer along­side Tim Smith, Paul Brett, An­ders Eden, and James Scott for Pre­science.
