Taylor Swift To Join Jennifer Hudson, James Corden In ‘Cats’ Movie Adaptation

Taylor Swift is set to take part in a movie adaptation of the musical Cats, according to The Hollywood Reporter. She will join Jennifer Hudson, James Corden and Ian McKellen. The movie, based on the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical, will be directed by Tom Hooper, who directed Oscar-winning work The King’s Speech and worked on 2012’s Les Miserables.

Cats, which includes songs such as “Memory,” is the fourth longest-running show in Broadway history, and was the longest-running Broadway show in history from 1997 until 2006. Webber’s musical was based on the T.S. Eliot novel Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats.

Production on the movie adaptation will launch later this year in the U.K., with additional cast members to be announced.
