Josie and the Pussycats without the familiar theme song? It’s enough to make you cough up a hair ball. But the movie starring Tara Reid, Rachael Leigh Cook, and Rosario Dawson may debut April 6 without its famously fluffy title tune (”Josie and the Pussycats/Long tails and ears for hats/Guitars for sharps and flats”). The producers have yet to come to terms with copyright owner Warner Music. ”Not going to happen,” predicts Cook. A Universal spokeswoman says negotiations continue. For her part, Josie writer-director Deborah Kaplan is willing to give up without a catfight. ”The theme song was stupid,” she says. ”A girl band singing about themselves — it’s not that appetizing.”
