Taylor Swift & Jennifer Hudson To Star In "Cats" Movie Musical

posted by Sabrina - 

I am so excited for this news! I love musicals, and this casting sounds PURRfect! 

Tom Hooper is directing a film based on Andrew Lloyd Webber's hit musical, CATS. Not only that... but it looks like the movie will star Taylor Swift, James Corden, Jennifer Hudson and Ian McKellen

Corden just recently performed CATS on The Late Late Show, during one of his funny skits, Crosswalk The Musical. This will not be his first musical movie either. Corden starred in the 2014 movie version of Into The Woods

#TBT to making ✨ memories ✨ on @LateLateShow with @J_Corden's "Crosswalk the Musical" ft. the works of our own @AndrewLloydWebber!

Swift has two pretty famous cats herself, Olivia and Meredith. Not to mention she obviously can sing and has proven she can dance. So, love it!

Just over here daydreaming about playing Manchester tomorrow... 💕
