Kevin Spacey’s played a murderous president, a supervillian, and an obsessed serial killer — and now he’s playing a completely different type of bad guy in the upcoming Nine Lives: an absentee dad and husband who transforms into a cat named Mr. Fuzzypants after a bad car accident.
Although turning into a cat — especially a cat named Mr. Fuzzypants — sounds like punishment, the trailer suggests that it’s actually an opportunity for Spacey’s Tom to step away from his workaholic lifestyle and fix his relationship with his family. How becoming a feline will accomplish this is not made clear.
Men in Black‘s Barry Sonnenfeld directed the film, which also stars Jennifer Garner, Christopher Walken, and Robbie Amell. Watch the trailer below, and see Nine Lives when it arrives in theaters Aug. 5.
