However, Julian Fellowes said that he was greatly inspired by the 1913 novel. He said :

The Broadway revival of Tennessee Williams’ 1955 family drama Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, starring Tony Award winner Scarlett Johansson and Benjamin Walker as a couple grappling with ghosts of the past and an uncertain future, ends its run March 30 at the Richard Rodgers Theatre.
Tony Award winner Rob Ashford (Evita, Thoroughly Modern Millie, Finding Neverland) helmed the production, set within a sweltering upstairs bedroom of a sweeping Mississipi plantation, which began previews Dec. 18, 2012, and officially opened Jan. 17.
It ends its 15-week engagement, as scheduled, having played 34 previews and 84 regular performances. Representatives for the production did not respond to questions regarding whether the production had recouped its investment. Critics offered a mixed response to the revival.
Cat on a Hot Tin Roof played to 61.7 percent capacity for the week ending March 24, grossing $647,429.
Scarlett (dressed head to toe by Dolce & Gabbana) and her co-stars attended the ‘Cat On A Hot Tin Roof’ opening night after party on January 17th at The Lighthouse at Chelsea Piers in New York City. Lots of celebrities attended the play, and though it got mixed reviews, all of them praised Scarlett’s performance, so well donde girl! Check out pics of the party in our gallery:

Scarlett Johansson didn’t receive an Oscar nomination on Thursday morning, but the actress could be a part of the 85th annual Academy Awards anyway. Johansson sings the Oscar-nominated song “Before My Time” from the documentary “Chasing Ice.” The music and lyrics are by J. Ralph, who gets credit for the Oscar nomination.
“Chasing Ice” was expected to earn a nomination for Best Documentary Feature, but it was left off that list. It did make the cut for Best Original Song, however, joining “Everybody Needs a Friend” from “Ted,” “Pi’s Lullaby” from “Life of Pi,” “Skyfall” from “Skyfall” and “Suddenly” from “Les Miserables.”
“Before My Time” is a mournful track that ran over the credits for “Chasing Ice.” According to IMDb, the film follows “National Geographic photographer James Balog across the Arctic as he deploys time-lapse cameras designed for one purpose: to capture a multi-year record of the world’s changing glaciers.”
Listen to “Before My Time” here. The 85th annual Academy Awards happen on Feb. 24; Johansson is not confirmed to appear just yet.

The Scarlett Johansson-toplined revival of “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof” has gone from possibility to certainty, with a production also starring Ciaran Hinds, Benjamin Walker and Debra Monk gearing up for a run that begins in December.
Set to direct is American helmer Rob Ashford (“How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying”), best known for staging musicals in the States but also the director of well-received play revivals in London.
Johansson, whose last gig on Broadway scored her a Tony for her turn in the 2010 revival of “A View From the Bridge,” will play Maggie the Cat. Hinds, last on the Rialto in 2007 play “The Seafarer,” is onboard as Big Daddy and Walker (“Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter”) — returning to Broadway after his breakout 2010 perf in musical “Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson — is set to play Maggie’s husband Brick. Monk takes on the role of Big Mama.
Ashford is no stranger to starry play revivals, having won raves in Blighty at the helm of the 2011 Jude Law starrer “Anna Christie” and the Rachel Weisz-toplined 2009 staging of “A Streetcar Named Desire,” both produced by London’s Donmar Warehouse.
Stuart Thompson, one of the producers of “View From the Bridge,” produces “Cat.”
Production of the 1955 Tennessee Williams play is the third to land on Broadway in the last decade, with a 2003 revival starring Ashley Judd followed in 2008 by an all-black production with a cast that included James Earl Jones and Phylicia Rashad.
Newest version of “Cat” begins previews Dec. 18 ahead of a Jan. 17 opening at the Richard Rodgers Theater.
As we previously announced. Scarlett attended yesterday to the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte (North Carolina). You can watch the video of her speech clicking here and here you have some extracts:
“I speak to you not as a representative of young Hollywood, but as a representative of the many millions of young Americans, particularly young women, who depend on public and nonprofit programs to help them survive.”
Johansson, dressed in rust-colored pants, stilettos, a tan blazer and a shirt featuring an American flag, spoke of growing up in a struggling middle-class family in New York City and living in a housing development for lower-middle-class families. Her family depended on benefits for school transport and food, she said, and some of her friends still depend on Planned Parenthood and Medicaid.
“That’s why I’m here today, to use whatever attention I’m fortunate enough to receive to shed the spotlight on what’s at stake for all of us.”
“I’m not going to tell you who to vote for,” she said. “I’m here to ask you to commit to vote.”
