Cats: The Movie

Recommended Posts

Andrew Lloyd Webber says a Cats movie is being developed, at least partly because of the success of Les Miserables.

 

 

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

 

Les Mis certainly gave Universal good reason to have faith in the musical genre. The Tom Hooper-directed adaptation grossed $441 million, won three Oscars, and was nominated for five others including Best Picture.

....

Assuming Universal plans to go the live-action route this time around, one of the particular challenges of a Cats movie will be to get audiences to buy into the idea of a bunch of absurdly made-up humans playing a tribe of cats. Webber acknowledged that that was a potential issue with the stage version, as well.

I think I shared this on Twitter and Facebook, but this trailer played before The Lion King and the two women sitting next to me had the following exchange:

Woman 1: It's Cats!
Woman 2: It's not Cats...
Woman 1: No, the *musical* Cats....
Woman 2: Cats is *not* a musical!

Woman #2 has obviously been living on some other planet.

And yet...she appeared to know all the lyrics to "Hakuna Matata" by heart.

Perhaps a planet where The Lion King is the only musical in any form?
