Kevin Spacey has signed a deal to star in Barry Sonnenfeld's Nine Lives as a workaholic businessman who ends up in the body of his family's cat following an accident. Please let this mean that we get a cat who stares directly into the camera and opines about power and planning.

Nine Lives is described as a "high-concept comedy," which, yes, any story with the conceit that the main character ends up in a pet's body obviously is. Since it's a pet and not him coming back in a cat, I certainly hope that the cat ends up in his body. Either way, this is a movie where Kevin Spacey plays a cat. Tentatively on board on that basis alone.
