Antoine Fuqua To Helm ‘Cat On A Hot Tin Roof’

Director Antoine Fuqua, currently in production on the Will Smith-fronted Emancipation, is set to direct and produce a new adaptation of Tennessee Williams’ Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. The play, a version of which was the first all-African American stage production on Broadway, follows an alcoholic former athlete and his family in a tale of greed, familial struggles, and sexual repression. Fuqua’s new film will combine parts of the Pulitzer Prize-winning play with new storylines, per Variety.
