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.
