According to Deadline, Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson has signed on to direct this reimagined tale for Walt Disney Studios. He will also be executive producing and overseeing music for the film — which is not surprising considering Thompson is a founding member of The Roots and has won six Grammy awards.

Will Gluck and Keith Bunin have penned the script, and Tarik Trotter, Shawn Gee, and Zarah Zohlman will be executive producing via Two One Five Entertainment.


The remake will follow the original film’s storyline about a family of cats living in Paris who finds themselves in a bit of trouble, and we can’t wait to learn more details.
