Video: Kevin Spacey turns into a cat for new film Nine Lives

Is Kevin Spacey feline alright? Frank Underwood as you have never seen him before...

We are used to seeing him as US commander-in-chief in House of Cards, but Kevin Spacey’s newest role isn’t exactly what you would expect from the Oscar-winner.

Nine Lives tells the story of Tom Brand (Spacey), described as “a daredevil billionaire at the top of his game.”

According to promo for the film: “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).”

How bizarre
How bizarre Kevin's character heads off to buy a cat from Christopher Walken.

 “Rebecca’s 11th birthday arrives, 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. So far so ordinary, until Tom’s 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.”

It gets better…

“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.”

As you do…

And finally…

“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.”

It’s about as far removed from Frank Underwood as it’s possible to get. Then again, there are many who believe that cats are evil…

The film’s release date has yet to be confirmed.
