Sony Pictures has sent us over an exclusive clip for their latest film A Street Cat Named Bob. The clip features actor Luke Treadaway sharing a tender moment, a reflection on his place in the world and how he managed to get there.
The film is an adaptation of James Bowen’s much-loved, best-selling book that stars Treadaway (Unbroken, Clash of the Titans) and Bob as Bob, and 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. It also stars Ruta Gedmintas (The Strain, The Incident), Joanne Froggatt (Downton Abbey, Filth), and Anthony Head (Buffy The Vampire Slayer). A Street Cat Named Bob is directed by Roger Spottiswoode (Tomorrow Never Dies, Under Fire, Air America, Turner and Hooch).
The book became a UK bestseller in 2012. To date it has sold more than one million copies in the UK and over two million copies in Germany. It has since been published in over 30 territories including the USA, China, and Japan, selling over five million copies worldwide and spent over 76 weeks at the top of the Sunday Times’ bestseller list. In a list of the books with the greatest longevity in the Sunday Times bestseller list across the last 40 years, A Street Cat Named Bob was ranked 23rd and stands as the book with the longest presence in the current decade to date.
A Street Cat Named Bob is out in Irish and UK cinemas on November 4th.
