Kevin Spacey is set to return to the big screen in 2016... but as you have never seen him before. Yes, the Oscar-winning actor is going to be turned into a cat!!!!
Comedy Nine Lives will mark the return of Barry Sonnenfeld to the director's chair - the man who brought us the Man In Black movies is back. In fact, we have not seen Sonnenfeld direct a big screen film since Men In Black 3 back in 2012.
Spacey is set to take on the central role of Tom Brand, a businessman who finds himself trapped in the body of his family's pet cat to teach him a lesson about putting work first.
The first trailer for the film has arrived, as well as some great new images, and we have it for you to take a look at:
As you would expect, a great cast has come together to work with Sonnenfeld as Spacey is joined by Jennifer Garner, Malina Weissman, Christopher Walken, Robbie Amell, Cheryl Hines, and Teddy Sears are all on board.
Tom Brand (Spacey) is a daredevil billionaire at the top of his game. His eponymous company FireBrand is nearing completion on its greatest achievement to date - the tallest skyscraper in the northern hemisphere. But Tom's workaholic lifestyle has disconnected him from his family, particularly his beautiful wife Lara (Garner) and his adoring daughter Rebecca (Malina).
Rebecca's 11th birthday is here, and she wants the gift she wants every year, a cat. Tom hates cats, but he is without a gift and time is running out. His GPS directs him to a mystical pet store brimming with odd and exotic cats- where the store's eccentric owner- Felix Perkins (Walken), presents him with a majestic tomcat, named Mr. Fuzzypants.
En route to his daughter's party, Tom has a terrible accident. When he regains consciousness he discovers that somehow, he has become trapped inside the body of the cat. Adopted by his own family, he begins to experience what life is truly like for the family pet, and as a cat, Tom begins to see his family and his life through a new and unexpected perspective. Meanwhile, his family adjusts to life with an odd and stubborn cat, and his son David (Amell), steps up in ways Tom never expected.
If any hope exists of returning to his family as the husband and father they deserve, Tom will have to learn why he has been placed in this peculiar situation and the great lengths he must go to earn back his human existence.
Nine Lives is coming soon.
