Who Should Play The Cats In The Movie Version Of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Cats?

When I was young, I loved the musical Cats. I saw it a bunch of times in local productions and even on Broadway, and at one point I was a Cats cat for Halloween. But if you were to ask me now, I would absolutely not be able to tell you what the musical is about. A bunch of cats? Are some of them sick? I have to imagine that they’re at least homeless, if not sick. And I think one or some of them die. But are they possibly sick, homeless, and dying enough to make it on the big screen?! From The Wrap:

“Cats” may claw its way to the big screen thanks to Hollywood’s renewed appetite for movie musicals, composer Andrew Lloyd Webber told the Daily Mail.

He reports that Universal Pictures, which owns the film rights to the stage smash, “…has now got ‘Cats’ out of the drawer in which they locked it years ago when they bought the rights and suddenly they’re talking about a film.”

The studio did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

“I haven’t seen the [Les Mis] film but it’s fantastic for musicals because everybody wants to make them again,” Lloyd Webber told the Mail.

Why didn’t you see the Les Mis film, Andrew Lloyd Webber? Are you lying? Aw, Mr. Lloyd Webber! Don’t lie! You don’t have to be jealous of the Les Mis film, do you remember the 1973 Jesus Christ Superstar film? That was the best and that was yours, my man! Hold your head up high. To make the idea of a Cats film seem like more of a possibility, I went ahead and worked on some casting ideas. Now, like I said, I don’t really remember what the musical was about, but I pieced together a few thoughts anyway, from what I could remember. Here you go!
