The movie is the latest project for British filmmaker Tom Hooper, who brought novel-turned-musical “Les Miserables” to the big screen and won an Oscar for directing “The King’s Speech.”

[post_ads]“Cats,” composed by Andrew Lloyd Webber and featuring the classic musical ballad “Memory,” opened in London in 1981 and originally was staged on Broadway from 1982 to 2000, the fourth-longest run in history.

Based on poems by T.S. Eliot, “Cats” tells of a feline tribe — in human form on stage — called the Jellicles who decide who among them will make a fateful ascent into a new life.

Cinema industry news site Variety said that Hudson, who won an Oscar for the 2006 film musical “Dreamgirls,” would play Grizabella, a formerly glamorous cat who longs for acceptance.

Variety and several other film sites said that “Cats” would also star, in roles to be determined, Swift, actor turned late-night comedian James Corden and veteran British actor Ian McKellen.

Film studio Universal did not respond to a request for comment. No release date has been announced for the film.

The 28-year-old Swift, who is touring through the end of November, is one of her generation’s highest-grossing singers, but she has also branched out into supporting roles on film.

She played a chaste girlfriend in the 2010 romantic comedy “Valentine’s Day” and, in a darker turn, appeared in the 2014 science-fiction film “The Giver.”

Swift is also known for her love of real-life cats. She frequently posts pictures on social media of her cats, Olivia and Meredith, who recently made a Hollywood debut in a scene in the superhero film “Deadpool 2.”
