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.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
