Nine Lives Trailer

"How did I get into this?!" EuropaCorp has unveiled a teaser trailer for a comedy called Nine Lives, which is a funky body switch film where Kevin Spacey ends up inside of a cat named Mr. Fuzzypants. The whole point is that Kevin Spacey plays a businessman who doesn't care enough about his family, and when they end up getting a cat (from pet shop owner Christopher Walken) he is put inside the cat in order to learn a lesson about spending time with them. The cast includes Robbie Amell, Jennifer Garner, Teddy Sears and Cheryl Hines. This is just a teaser trailer (IMDb even claims they're not done filming yet) and barely has any footage, but cat lovers (and fans of Kevin Spacey or Christopher Walken) will definitely flip for this.

Here's the first trailer (+ poster) for Barry Sonnenfeld's Nine Lives, found on YouTube (via The Playlist):

Nine Lives

Tom Brand (Kevin Spacey) is a daredevil billionaire at the top of his game. But Tom's workaholic lifestyle has disconnected him from his family, particularly his wife Lara (Jennifer Garner) and daughter Rebecca (Malina Weissman). Rebecca's 11th birthday is here, and she wants a cat. Tom hates cats but needs a gift. He finds a mystical pet store where the owner, Felix Perkins (Christopher Walken), presents him with a tomcat named Mr. Fuzzypants. En route to his daughter's party, Tom has a terrible accident. When he wakes he discovers he is trapped in the body of the cat. Adopted by his own family, he begins to experience his life through a new perspective. Nine Lives is directed by veteran filmmaker Barry Sonenfeld (of Get Shorty, Men in Black 1-3, Wild Wild West, Big Trouble, RV and Dead Boss previously). EuropaCorp USA and Relativity will release Nine Lives in theaters everywhere starting August 5th later this year. Thoughts?

As someone who watched those Look Who's Talking movies way too much as a kid, I can't say this isn't something I'd watch. I wouldn't pay for a theater ticket, but definitely would watch.

I feel like this is a remake of an old Disney movie....I'm reminded of the Shaggy Dog movies where the dad becomes a dog....

That's exactly what I was thinking. It's the Shaggy Dog but...with a cat.

Not for me. I'm sure there is an audience out there since this is probably a 2 hour compilation of LOLCAT skits. People seem to like that stuff.

Because the role was purrrrrfect for him? Or more likely the money was up there in the meowllions!

I don't know. Christopher Walken could be the only reason to watch it. But, seriously, I don't know ...

I feel like his role in this is almost identical to his role in Click with Adam Sandler.

For some time, I can't watch movies with Adam Sandler. Sorry, I don't care if there's any good actor in it. Sorry, just can't. But I see where you getting at. And that doesn't make me happy either ...

Let me guess; he learns to be a better father and human being through being a cat?

Does Spacey do his Walken impression WHILE being the cat?? If so, I'm in. If not, then I guess I'll have to pass...
