Kevin Spacey has played Lex Luthor, criminal mastermind Keyser Soze, President Richard Nixon, and plenty of other terrific roles throughout his career, but has he ever been a cat? Fortunately, or perhaps unfortunately, for us he'll have a chance to do it in Nine Lives, a comedy that sees spacey as a man trapped in a feline's body.
This may sound utterly ridiculous but there's an impressive cast surrounding Spacey, so maybe there's more to it than meets the eye? Jennifer Garner, Christopher Walken, and Robbie Amell co-star in the film about a workaholic billionaire father who is magically transformed into a cat, and begins to see his neglected family in a whole new light.
The only reasons this isn't on the Disney Channel or going straight to DVD is the cast. Let's be honest about that.
Directed by Barry Sonnenfeld, Nine Lives opens August 5th.
