After twice playing a lazy house cat (Garfield), a big bear (The Jungle Book), a badger (Fantastic Mr. Fox), and a dog (Isle of Lost Dogs), Bill Murray is taking another swing at the latter.
In Bum’s Rush, the film follows a “highly skilled custom boot maker” (Anne Hathaway) who takes in a stray dog (Murray). As you can imagine, the bond they share takes over and “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,” as described by Deadline.
Bum’s Rush features a script by C Gaby Mitchell and is going to be directed by Aaron Schneider (Greyhound). And honestly, it doesn’t matter much what the movie is about. The presence of The elusive Murray alone is enough promise as we need to hear.
