Now Idris Elba is busy creating problems for Dwayne Johnson and Jason State on the set of the action "Hobbs and Shaw". However, soon the owner of the Golden Globe will have to change his field of activity, and in a radical way. As the portal Deadline found out, Elba joined the cast of the film musical "Cats".|
The premiere of an original theatrical production based on the book by T.S. Eliot's Popular Cat Science, Written by an Old Opossum, took place in London in 1981. The long-lived musical has won numerous awards, including seven Tony Awards. It is about cats from the Jellicle tribe, who gather every year to a ball to find out from their elder Duteronomy which of them will go to feline paradise. Director Tom Hooper (Les Miserables) intended to shoot the film version of Cats a couple of years ago, but only now the film is one step closer to the big screens.
Prior to Idris Elba, Taylor Swift, Jennifer Hudson, Ian McKellen, James Corden and Laurie Davidson signed up for Cats. According to the source, Elba got the role of Macavity - the only antagonist of "Cats" who kidnaps Duteronomy.
Hooper's musical film will premiere on December 20 next year.
