From director Barry Sonnenfeld (Men In Black trilogy, The Addams Family) comes “NINE LIVES”, an upcoming comedy film following the life of a very rich man in a new form.
Tom Brand (Kevin Spacey) is a bigwig business executive who gets turned into a cat named “Mr Fuzzy Pants” in a sick twist of fate, due to his neglect of his wife (Jennifer Garner) and daughter. Until he makes things right he will remain in the body of a cat, as told by Christopher Walken’s character. What makes it even better is: he HATES cats. Too good, right?
The trailer teases just enough about the humour of a human in a cat’s body, and just enough of Christopher Walken to make me look forward to seeing how many lives Mr. Fuzzy Pants uses.
While the premise of this film may seem silly the cast, the director, and the French distribution company, EuropaCorp, gives me hope for this comedy picture.
Nine Lives is set for release on August 5th, 2016.
