Sequel to A Street Cat Named Bob goes into production

A sequel to A Street Cat Named Bob has gone into production. 

The 2016 film, which starred Luke Treadaway, was adapted from James Bowen's bestselling memoir of the same name. 

Bowen, a homeless man recovering from heroin addiction, was at his lowest ebb, a stray cat wandered into his life and, as Bowen tells it, saved him from certain death with companionship and by giving him a reason to live. 

The sequel sees Treadaway return to play Bowen once again, with Tim Plester and Ella Jarvis among the supporting cast. 

The new film, which is taken from Bowen's follow-up A Gift From Bob, will focus on the last Christmas the pair spent on the streets, trying to get through the festive period.

Bob, who played himself in the original movie, will return to play himself once again in the sequel. 

Charles Martin Smith is directing the sequel, which has been written by Garry Jenkins. 

You can check out the original here in hmv's online store.
