Andrew Llyod Webber is fresh off his EGOT status and preparing Tom Hooper’s screen adaptation of Cats, which starts filming in November. While Jennifer Hudson stars as “glamour cat” Grizabella, the flick got some traction for another star cameo. Taylor Swift, who is a major cat lover herself, has a role. Lloyd discussed her part to Vulture, and gave some ideas as to where she’ll fit in to the movie.
“She’s going to play one or other of the ‘Macavity’ girls,” he said, noting that he hasn’t decided which one. “Well, basically, Tom Hooper thought it was a really good idea, and of course, she loves cats.”
“We’ll see. I mean, I haven’t met her, so I’m looking forward to meeting her and seeing her [at work].”
Cats is out December 20, 2019. Surely, Swift’s famous feline friends Olivia Benson and Meredith will be first in line to watch.
