Thompson and Theroux Are “Lady and the Tramp”

Disney has found its live action Lady and the Tramp.

Tessa Thompson, who more than impressed as Valkyrie in Thor: Ragnarok, and Justin Theroux, who was responsible for writing the Marvel Cinematic Universe entry Iron Man 2, are set to voice the titular duo in Disney’s upcoming live-action/CGI hybrid.

In the film, Lady is a pampered Cocker Spaniel who learns a thing or two about street smarts from the ruggish Tramp. They are joined by Scottish Terrier Jackie, to be voiced by Ashley Jensen; English bulldog Bull, to be voiced by Benedict Wong; and Kiersey Clemons, who will play Lady’s human owner, Darling.

Charlie Bean is directing the new adaptation from a script by Andrew Bujalski. The film is expected to premiere in 2019 on Disney’s upcoming streaming digital service.
