Trae Patton/NBCJennifer Hudson will star with Taylor Swift in a movie version of the iconic Broadway musical, Cats.
The film, based on the hit Andrew Lloyd Webber stage production, will be directed by Tom Hooper, Deadline.com reports. Hudson confirmed the news on Twitter, commenting on a meme, “I guess the CATS out of the bag!” The Grammy and Oscar winner will portray Grizabella, the former “Glamour Cat.”
