A big screen adaptation of the hit musical Cats has been pitched for many years. Back in 2016 it was announced that Universal Pictures won the rights for the film with Academy Award winning director Tom Hopper (Les Miserables) set to direct, from a script by Lee Hall (Billy Elliot). Since then it has been pretty quiet on all the updates, but now we have some news that may intrigue you.

According to our sources Anne Hathaway is in talks to star in a currently unknown role. The studio is also looking at Rihanna for the role of Bombalurina a key character featured in the musical, but as of now its only interest, and no formal talks have taken place.

The film is expected to begin production sometime in September in London.

I can't stand this musical, so I'm mostly curious if this will be done with motion-capture or the makeups and costumes of the stage show. I hope it's the former, because I don't think those scary-as-heck costumes and makeup would translate to a film adaptation.

I wouldn't mind Anne Hathaway as Grizabella, whom I'm sure she would play.

I like bits and pieces of the musical, but overall it's kind of meh.

I looooooove Cats. I own the CD and movie and saw the show twice on Broadway. The first time was the original run and I was like 12 so I was bored. But the after I saw the movie I fell in love and the second time I saw it was the revival and it was fantastic. I anticipate makeup and costumes like the original show which I would peefer, but I would take a CGI interpretation.

I'm ambivalent to Cats. All I'm interested in is who'll be singing "Memory." I liked Leona Lewis' take when she was in a show of this recently, but maybe for the film they'll get someone older like the character is supposed to be (Elaine Page?).

Leona Lewis was selected for star power. She wouldn't even let them put her in the full make-up because she didn't want to "look ugly". She sang the song well, but whoever I saw as Grizabella that came after her (Mamie Parris?), me and my friend agreed she was better. She really had the pipes and amazed me when she sang the big climax of "Memory". I think Elaine Paige may be too old for the part, like maybe too old to sing well anymore, but even if not, since she was in the filmed version which is already a movie, I don't think they will choose her. I certainly would not mind if they choose her, but I would like to see someone new, as long as they can do the part justice.

That's nice for you and your friend. My opinions of Lewis and Page are unchanged.

Well of course, you can still like Leona Lewis as Grizabella and want Elaine Page. I was giving my opinion as well.
