Her love of cats has been well documented in the past.

But it looks like Taylor Swift is set to bring her fondness for felines to the big screen with her latest acting role.

According to Screen Dailyshe will be joined by Dreamgirls' Jennifer Hudson, James Corden and Ian McKellen.

Tom Hooper is set to direct the film, which is said to be shooing in the UK in November.

The movie is based on the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical of the same name, which, in turn, was adapted from T.S. Eliot's Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats.

The stage version of Cats was one of the longest running shows in the history of Broadway and the West End.

It follows a group of felines called the Jellicles as, one night, they have to make the 'Jellicle choice' and decide which one of their group will go to the Heaviside Layer and come back to life.

It's not the first time that Swift has made the move from the stage to the big screen.

She previously played Rosemary in the feature film adaptation of The Giver, while also voicing the part of Audrey in The Lorax.
