    Tom Hooper (The King's Speech, Les Misérables,The Danish Girl )is directing the film based on Andrew Lloyd Webber's hit musical.
    Working Title and Universal's much-discussed movie adaptation of the hit Cats musical has grown some sizeable claws.

    Taylor Swift, Jennifer Hudson, James Corden and Ian McKellen are set to star in the film, to be directed by Tom Hooper and telling the story of a tribe of cats called the 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.

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

    I saw the thread title as directed by Tobe Hooper. I feared for those cats.

    there was a time in my life when I'd have been first in the queue to watch this... I don't seem to be able to score any LSD these days though, so I think I'll pass.

    I'm in the minority, I didn't hate the trailer? I mean the actors were dressed like actual cats on the Broadway stage as well. Okay, they look a bit odd in the trailer, but it's an odd story to begin with.

    Saw it on stage as a kid and it was almost exactly like this, so I tend to agree.

    But I do find the internet/twitter variations hilarious, some of them are inspired (although the Us version is good, the Thundercats one is great too).
