The Movie Adaption of Broadway's 'Cats' Sounds Like a Crazy Person Wrote It

By

If you ever watched TV in the late '80s and '90s, especially in the greater NYC area, you've probably seen a commercial with some orchestrated music about some nerds dancing around in skintight cat suits. Cats was a smash hit on the stage and the longest running Broadway show at one time. It's since been bested by another cat play, The Lion King; Chicago, which is about Richard Gere and fishnet stockings if I remember correctly; and The Phantom of the Opera, a play about a goth who lives in a sewer and obsesses over some chick who's grossed out by him.

Recently, probably because more reboots and adaptations are being developed in Hollywood than ever before, it's been announced that a Cats movie adaptation is in the works.

And details on the film reveals it's utterly psychotic.

One of the weirdest pieces of news regarding the musical is that the actors won't be rocking the leotards and unitards lifted straight from a Jazzercise class. Instead, they'll be transformed into CGI cats.

And those cats will be cat-sized, not the giant furries that sang and tumbled about on stage during the old-school production.
