News hit earlier this year that the Broadway musical Cats is being adapted into a film. When Taylor Swift was revealed as a cast member, many wondered who she would play. Now we know!
Andrew Lloyd Webber, the musical’s original composer, who’s working on the movie, as well, told Vulture: “She’s going to play one or other of the ‘Macavity’ girls”. Specifically, either Bombalurina or Demeter.
The composer also noted that it was the film’s director, Tom Hooper, who vied for Swift. “Basically, Tom Hooper thought it was a really good idea, and of course, she loves cats,” Webber continued. “We’ll see. I mean, I haven’t met her, so I’m looking forward to meeting her and seeing her [at work].”
Jennifer Hudson, James Corden, and Ian McKellen are among others who are set to star in the movie.
