Cats, which had a record-breaking run on Broadway from 1997-2006, follows a clutter of cats called the Jellicles. Action surrounds the night of the Jellicle Ball when one cat will be chosen by Old Deuteronomy to go to the Heaviside Layer.

McKellan is set to play Old Deuteronomy, while Hudson will portray Grizabella, the glamorous cat in the group. Swift will likely play the flirty Bombalurina although more is yet to be confirmed.

The Andrew Lloyd Webber musical was based T.S. Eliot’s “Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats.” Filming will reportedly get underway later in the year in the UK.
