Align, Twickenham Studios, and Producers Adam Rolston and Parkhouse Pictures are thrilled to announce that principal photography has commenced for A GIFT FROM BOB – the sequel to the international hit film A STREET CAT NAMED BOB and based on the international best-selling books.
Luke Treadaway (Attack The Block, Brothers of the Head) returns as James Bowen, and Bob the Cat (A Street Cat Named Bob) is returning as himself.
From the day James Bowen rescued a street cat abandoned in the hallway of his sheltered accommodation, they began a friendship which has transformed both their lives and touched millions around the world.
In A GIFT FROM BOB, James looks back at the last Christmas he and Bob spent scraping a living on the streets and how Bob helped him through one of his toughest times – providing strength, friendship and inspiration. Ultimately teaching each other about the true meaning of Christmas spirit along the way.
A GIFT FROM BOB is directed by Charles Martin Smith (A Dog’s Way Home, Dolphin Tale, Dolphin Tale 2, Stone of Destiny), written and executive produced by Garry Jenkins (A Street Cat Named Bob) and produced by Adam Rolston (A Street Cat Named Bob), Tracy and Steve Jarvis of Parkhouse Pictures (Anna and the Apocalypse) and Andrew Boswell and Sunny Vohra of Twickenham Studios.
