AFM: ‘A Street Cat Named Bob’ Sells to Key Markets

The Exchange has closed several key deals for “A Street Cat Named Bob,” starring Luke Treadaway and Ruta Gedmintas.

The film is an adaptation of James Bowen’s best-selling book of the same title which chronicles his life as a street musician and recovering addict barely getting by in London. He adopts a sick stray ginger cat, names him Bob and nurses him back to health. He then took Bob with him as he played guitar — and the pair became an instant attraction.

Sony Pictures Worldwide has acquired rights to Australia/New Zealand, Latin America, Scandinavia, Spain and the U.K. Tele Muenchen bought rights to Germany and Switzerland; Notorious Pictures bought Italy; Comstock Group bought Japan; and Noori Pictures bought South Korea.

Roger Spottiswoode directed “A Street Cat Named Bob.” Adam Rolston of Shooting Script Films produced; executive producers are Tim Smith, Paul Brett from Prescience and Damian Jones. The Exchange is handling sales at the American Film Market, which opens Wednesday.
