TESSA THOMPSON IN TALKS TO STAR IN ‘LADY AND THE TRAMP’ REMAKE
Tessa Thompson is in negotiations to voice the lead in Disney’s live-action-CGI remake of Lady and the Tramp.
Thompson will play Lady, the well-off female cocker spaniel who falls in love with a stray dog named Tramp, who will be voiced by Justin Theroux. The film reportedly won’t receive a theatrical release and will instead be available exclusively on Disney’s streaming service once it launches in 2019.
The cast also includes Kiersey Clemons, Ashley Jensen, and Benedict Wong.
