    Just announced that Tom Hooper (Les misérables, The King's Speech, The Danish Girl) will direct a movie version of the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical.

    ACADEMY AWARD WINNER Jennifer Hudson will be playing Grizabella, aka the Elaine Paige role. :D That's got to be a second nomination - and possible WIN - pretty much in the bag. I mean the NARRATIVE. (Sidebar: poor old Leona. SNUBBED AGAIN)

    Also starring ACADEMY AWARD NOMINEE Ian McKellen as Old Deuteronomy and the gruesome twosome of James Corden and Taylor Swift in undisclosed roles. (Guessing Taylor will be trilling the Sarah Brightman bits?)

    I don't get Cats the musical. Also this feels like a flop.

    Oh the musical is TERRIBLE. But if anyone’s going to turn it into Oscar bait it’s Tom Hooper.

    Talking as a cat lover, the fucking Jellicle Cats deserve to be exterminated.

    The cast sounds dire, but Andrew Lloyd Webber is extremely not good tbh.

    Is this going to be an animated movie?

    I'm clutching at straws here as I've no idea how on EARTH this is going to work...

    lol at the blatant stunt casting of James Corden, he was the worst thing on OCean's 8 basically cause he's not an actor and he was playing a more annoying version of james fucking corden

    as for Taylor, she's only been in rubbish movies like Valentine's Day and The Giver (in a non-speaking role as far as I remember)

    Well Corden is actually an actor and an award winning one on the stage. His singing voice doesn’t lend well to a proper musical though.

    The date that the now-shelved Wicked movie was slated for release - also from Universal.

    More casting

    Idris Elba - Macavity
    Dame Judi Dench - Old Deuteronomy
    Mette Towley - Jemima

    Still no word on who Taylor and James Corden are actually playing. Hopefully ROADKILL.

    Wicked hasn't been shelved. They just haven't given it a new date yet.

    Did Nicole Scherzinger turn this down or did she not get offered a part? She would have been PERFECT for this film.

    You say that, but there's also an entire generation who'll have their sexual awakening while watching it :o

    I literally don't know a single thing about Cats but this looks like the most absurdly homosexual film since Burlesque at the very least :D not a single straight man will be paying to see this shit.

    Ian McKellen as a cat looks startlingly like Ian McKellen in regular non-feline form.

    Not in that way, as in she’s supposed to be a mangy cat. She’s bad cgi.

    I’m left a little confused by all this. I mean the play is people dancing in cat suits and singing songs. I don’t know what else people expected. I wasn’t sure what was CGI either, costume-wise. Couldn’t they do most of it with makeup?

    I mean I don’t really want to see it (but wait for everyone in Japan to see it), but I don’t know what else could’ve been made.
