Deadline is reporting that Anne Hathaway and Bill Murray have signed on to star in Bum’s Rush, with Robert Duvall also in final negotiations to join the cast.
The film will see Hathaway playing Pearl, “a highly skilled custom boot maker who crosses paths with a singular stray dog Bum (to be voiced by Bill Murray). The two highly independent souls find themselves at a serious crossroads, one that will change both their hearts and minds in ways they can hardly imagine.”
Bum’s Rush is being directed by Aaron Schneider (Greyhound) from a script by C Gaby Mitchell (Blood Diamond, while Sarah Green (Loving) produces.
“I am so happy to reunite with my Get Low collaborators Robert Duvall, Bill Murray and C Gaby Mitchell and of course delighted to work with Anne Hathaway and Sarah Green,” said Schneider. “It’s a very special project and I’m thrilled to be a part of it.”
