A Street Cat Named Bob is a book that has taken the world by storm and now... it has been adapted into a feature film.
A Street Cast Named Bob is based on the book of the same name by James Bowen and will see Luke Treadaway take on the role of James in the film.
The movie marks the return of Roger Spottiswoode to the director's chair for what will be his first feature since The Journey Home back in 2014.
We are going to have to wait until November for the release of the film, but the first trailer has been unveiled. Take a look:
Treadaway takes on the central role in the film and is joined on the cast list by Ruta Gedmintas, Joanne Froggatt, Anthony Head, and (of course) Bob the cat.
Filming took place over six weeks in London, mainly in Covent Garden where James and Bob used to busk.
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.
A Street Cat Named Bob is such a charming book and I cannot wait to see how it has been adapted for the big screen. This really is promising to be a November film that is not to be missed.
A Street Cat Named Bob is released 4th November.
