Kevin Spacey is going to be a real pussy in Nine Lives

I suppose playing the enigmatic Francis Underwood in House of Cards has given Kevin Spacey the itch to take on something a touch lighter, or perhaps he has bills to pay. Either way, Spacey will be playing the role of a workaholic businessman who suffers a terrible accident that leaves him trapped in the body of the family cat. I hate it when that happens! Now, I could see an R-rated affair having something interesting to offer but Barry Sonnenfeld describes his high-concept comedy as a "funny, emotional and commercial." Commercial and R-rated don't exactly go hand-in-hand. The script, NINE LIVES, has been penned by Daniel Antoniazzi and Ben Shiffrin. So there's that.

I dig Kevin Spacey in comedies as much as the next person, but usually only when he's allowed to really let loose (AMERICAN BEAUTY, HORRIBLE BOSSES). I'm trying to picture Spacey's voice coming out of a cat, but I'm getting these awful PTSD-like flashes of Bill Murray's GARFIELD and that's just no fun for anyone. I suppose there's a whole legion of people who want to subject themselves to Spacey's voice emanating from a cat for 90 minutes. To them I say, "You're a braver person than I."

Someone is going to pay money for this.

Extra Tidbit: Special thanks to Bryan Elmore and his extraordinary appreciation for cats!

Does it have to be directed by Barry Sonnenfeld? His comedy chops are very rusty at this point.
