Watch: Kevin Spacey Plays a Cat in First Trailer for Wacky 'Nine Lives'
"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.
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?
