English musical composer Andrew Lloyd Webber, who is marked as the most commercially successful composer in history, spoke to Sunday Times and slammed the ‘Cats’ movie.
During the interview, the Lord Lloyd-Webber, the composer of ‘The Phantom of the Opera’ said regarding the movie by addressing to the director, Tom Hooper:
“The problem with the film was that Tom Hooper decided, as he had with Les Mis, that he didn’t want anybody involved in it who was involved in the original show.”
As might be known, Webber had composed show tune, “Memory” for the 1981 musical ‘Cats.’ He also had contributed the song ‘Beautiful Ghosts’ to the movie.
The “fifth most powerful person in British culture” added then:
“The whole thing was ridiculous.”
The 2019 dated film adaptation, starring Jennifer Hudson, Ian McKellen, Idris Elba, Taylor Swift, and Jason Derulo, had been received poor reactions by audiences.
As for Hooper had told Entertainment Weekly that:
“I didn’t think it was going to be a big deal, and it was obviously much more of a big deal than I thought. Reading some of the commentaries was pretty entertaining.”
