Tessa Thompson in Talks to Voice Lady in Disney's Live-Action <i>Lady and the Tramp</i>

You know Tessa Thompson. She’s popped up in just about everything, appearing in Thor: Ragnarok, Sorry to Bother You, Westworld and even Janelle Monae’s Dirty Computer emotion picture. Now, the actress (and Caught a Ghost bandmate—who knew?) is in talks to voice Lady in Disney’s live-action reboot of Lady and the Tramp.

As THR reports, Thompson will star opposite Justin Theroux’s Tramp. Lady and the Tramp is the most recent addition to Disney’s growing list of live-action rehashes, in the vein of Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella, The Jungle Book, and the as-yet-unreleased Dumbo, Mulan, Aladdin and The Lion King.

Charlie Bean (The Lego Ninjago Movie) is set to direct the project. Lady and the Tramp will likely be released via Disney’s streaming service sometime in 2019, but until then, enjoy Thompson’s Daytrotter Session with Caught a Ghost below.
