Taylor Swift, Jennifer Hudson Lead Star-Studded 'Cats' Film Adaptation

Taylor Swift, Jennifer Hudson Lead Star-Studded 'Cats' Film Adaptation

Cats is based on T S Eliot's poetry which featured in The Old Possum's Book Of Practical Cats.

Swift's last movie role was in 2014's The Giver, which followed a brief cameo on Fox's New Girl and a voice role in the animated The Lorax.

The cast being lined up for the upcoming "Cats" movie features some big names. According to Variety, the adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Webber's hit will star Jennifer Hudson, Taylor Swift (appropriate, given her heavily documented love of cats), Ian McKellen, and James Corden.

Swift is being eyed as the flirtatious red cat Bombalurina, while McKellen will play the elderly feline leader Old Deuteronomy, the Hollywood Reporter said.

Senators had floated a similar idea earlier , and Republican Jeff Flake of Arizona said he was preparing a bipartisan bill. Trump raged about him on Twitter, and the lawmaker ultimately lost his Republican primary last month to a Trump loyalist.

The Royal Ballet's Wayne McGregor had previously been announced as the film's choreographer, while Billy Elliot's Lee Hall is reportedly on board to write the screenplay. Tom Hooper's long-gestating Cats movie adaptation has set its cast, and it's a who's who of pop stars, talk show hosts, and stage veterans - all of whom you'll really want to see don skin-tight catsuits.

First performed in 1981, Cats is the fourth longest-running show in Broadway as well as West End history, with a direct-to-video version of the production released in 1998.
