Kevin Spacey to Star in a Movie About a Man Trapped in a Cat's Body

Jan 28, 2015

Everyone loves Kevin Spacey. He's one of those rare actors who is not only incredible on-screen, in every single role, but is exceedingly likeable and normal off camera as well. Combine the two and you've got this persona that Kevin Spacey is kind of just the Man.

Well, now the Man is playing a man who gets trapped in the body of a cat. 

Yes, this is a real movie. It's called Nine Lives and it comes from director Barry Sonnenfeld (Men in Black) and the eccentric European studio EuropaCorp (Lucy). The Wrap explains that the Oscar-winning Spacey will be playing a "a workaholic businessman who suffers a terrible accident that leaves him trapped in the body of the family cat." But unfortunately there's not much clarification beyond that.

How does he get trapped? Can the cat talk? Is this a body-swap comedy, and if so, does that mean that the cat goes inside Kevin Spacey?

Expect all those questions, and more, to be answered in the next year or two.

Oh, and if you don't already like Spacey enough, here's the letter he paid to run in Variety to thank the Screen Actors Guild for his recent win for House of Cards.
