Broadway could see its third revival of Cat On a Hot Tin Roof within a decade, according to an interview with Academy Award-nominated "Hurt Locker" star Jeremy Renner.
Renner told the Hollywood Reporter that one of his possible projects is a Broadway run of Tennessee Williams' Cat On a Hot Tin Roof with his "Avengers" co-star Scarlett Johansson, who was last seen on Broadway in a revival of Arthur Miller's A View from the Bridge. The only snag will be if director Ridley Scott hires him for the upcoming film "The Counselor," he said.
Cat On a Hot Tin Roof was last revived in 2008 with an all-African American cast led by Terrence Howard and Anika Noni Rose. A 2003 revival starred Jason Patric and Ashley Judd.
Deaf West’s production of SPRING AWAKENING floored the critics when it premiered in California, prompting the Los Angeles Times to write, "It's hard to enumerate all the ways in which Deaf West's SPRING AWAKENING is so very, very good." Now this unapologetically brilliant new production is coming to New York.
