If movies about dogs are one of your favorite genres, you should add Bum’s Rush to your watch list. This promising canine drama launched sales at the Cannes virtual market, and it’s set to star Anne Hathaway and Bill Murray.

Bum’s Rush will center on a highly-skilled custom boot maker (Hathaway), who finds herself at a serious crossroads after stumbling upon a singular stray dog, Bum (voiced by Murray). Robert Duvall is in talks to join the cast in an undisclosed role.

Aaron Schneider (Get Low) will be in charge of directing this film, based on the script by C. Gaby Mitchell (Blood Diamond). They’ll produce this project alongside Sarah Green, who has high expectations for Bum’s Rush.

“We are all dog lovers on this team, and now more than ever we appreciate their value in our lives. We are excited to join forces with Rocket Science and CAA to bring this timely story to the world,” said Green and Mitchell in a statement.
