Blake Friedmann Media Department is delighted to herald the nationwide cinema release of A STREET CAT NAMED BOB on Friday 4th November.

Two agency clients were involved in the film adaptation of James Bowen’s best-selling book: director Roger Spottiswoode and screenwriter Tim John.

A STREET CAT NAMED BOB is a heartening tale of survival, redemption and an overly inquisitive cat. James Bowen was a heroin addict, struggling to stick to his rehabilitation on a methadone programme in London. That is until Bob, a ginger stray, jumped into his flat and refused to leave.

James and Bob’s new friendship piques the interest of animal loving neighbour Belle, a volunteer at a local charity for vets. Gradually, Bob gives James something to feed other than his own addiction, and when he takes the cat out busking, Bob is an instant hit with the Covent Garden crowds. 

The movie, starring Luke Treadaway and Ruta Gedmintas and featuring the real life ‘Bob’, will be launched by a Royal Premiere screening on Thursday 3rd November attended by HRH the Duchess of Cambridge.
