Based on Andrew Lloyd Webber’s perennial musical. Director Tom Hooper is exploring whether to do the film entirely in CGI, entirely in live-action, or a combination of both ala the recent hit "The Jungle Book."
First performed in 1981, “Cats” is the fourth longest-running show in Broadway as well as West End history, with a direct-to-video version of the production released in 1998. Based on T. S. Eliot’s Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats, the show is set amongst a larger- than-life junkyard playground and is alive with our favorite feline characters including Rum Tum Tugger, Mr. Mistoffelees, Macavity, Jennyanydots, Old Deuteronomy, Grizabella and Skimbleshanks.
