Taylor Swift And Jennifer Hudson Cast In Cats Movie

Taylor Swift and Jennifer Hudson are two of the stars that have been cast in Working Title’s upcoming movie version of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical Cats. Hudson will play Grizabella, the former “glamour cat” who falls on hard times and gets to sing about it in showstopper “Memory.” It’s unclear which roles will be played by Swift, James Corden and Ian McKellen. Besides Grizabella, other characters include Old Deuteronomy, Macavity, Skimbleshanks and the Rum Tum Tugger. Oscar-winning director Tom Hooper will direct, with shooting set to begin in Britain in November. The screenplay by Lee Hall (Billy Elliot) is based on Lloyd Webber’s musical, which was itself adapted from a book of children’s poems by T.S. Eliot. Cats is one of the most successful musicals in history, enjoying long runs both in London’s West End and on Broadway. Copyright(c) 2018 RTTNews.com. All Rights ReservedLess «
