Do you enjoy “House of Cards?” Want to see Frank Underwood as a cat? That is apparently now a possibility, thanks to an upcoming film entitled, “Nine Lives.”
In it, Kevin Spacey plays a wildly successful businessman who doesn’t make enough time for his family. Of course, that leads to him being magically turned into a cat. Before you ask, no, I am not making this up. Barry Sonnenfeld, the director behind the “Men in Black” franchise, was at the helm for this flick.
Here’s a full plot description, via IMDB:
“Tom Brand (Kevin 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 (Jennifer Garner) and his adoring daughter Rebecca (Malina Weissman). 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 (Christopher 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…”

Christopher Walken looks like he could be playing the same character he did in “Click.” I know he isn’t, but man…I’d be hyped if he was.
