Jennifer Hudson, Taylor Swift, James Corden and Ian McKellen are all reportedly set to star in the big screen version of Cats.
According to Baz Bamigboye in the Daily Mail, Hudson is set to play Grizabella in the film which is being directed by Tom Hooper.
He quotes sources as saying Swift, Corden and McKellen are also being lined up for the film version of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical.
Bamigboye says dancers and singers are being auditioned and begin rehearsing the production numbers with choreographer Wayne McGregor next month.
The lead cast members will rehearse later and join them in time for production to begin at Leavesden Studios in Hertfordshire in November.
