Almost exactly one year ago, it was announced that Kevin Spacey would be playing a cat in an upcoming movie. Yes, a cat. The description of Nine Lives is your typical Freaky Friday/Big/general gypsy curse synopsis: “a workaholic businessman who suffers a terrible accident that leaves him trapped in the body of the family cat.”
Does that sound stupid? Are you wondering how this movie got made, let alone got Kevin Spacey (and Jennifer Garner AND CHRISTOPHER WALKEN) to sign on to this? Are you imagining that Spacey must have a gambling problem, or a yacht addiction, or has hit the curse clause in his monkey’s paw devil pact wherein he’s finding out that that wish he made in the 80s to have a successful acting career now means he’s never allowed to turn down another role for the rest of his life?
Based on this banner ad that popped up during the trailer, by the way, I’d bet on the latter.
This trailer broke something inside of me. I need to go take a forever nap.
