‘Cats’ is coming to the big screen
Andrew Lloyd Webber’s hit musical ‘Cats’ is heading to a screen near you all thanks to Working Title and Universal. And the cast couldn’t be any more 'purrrr-fect’! Taylor Swift, Jennifer Hudson, James Corden and Ian McKellen are all set to star in the film adaption.
The movie will tell the iconic 'Cats' story about the night the Jellicles tribe make what is known as “the Jellicle choice", and decide which cat will ascend to the Heaviside Layer and come back to a new life.
Early reports have Jennifer Hudson playing Grizabella, the former “glamour cat” who sings the iconic showstopper “Memory”.
