Taylor Swift, Jennifer Hudson, James Corden, Ian McKellen to Star in ‘Cats’ Movie Adaptation

The movie adaptation of ‘Cats’ has grown some claws. Working Title and Universal have gathered Taylor Swift, Jennifer Hudson, James Corden and Ian McKellen to star in the film that is being directed by Tom Hooper.

The movie will be about a tribe of cats called Jellicles and the night they 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.

The musical is the fourth longest running show in Broadway history and was the longest running show in Broadway from 1997 up until 2006.

The production of Cats is set to begin later this year in the U.K, with more cast due to be announced later.
