After Questlove won Best Documentary Feature at the 2022 Oscars, even though it was his directorial debut, it was only a matter of time before he would be involved with movies again.
He is an executive producer for a documentary about J Dilla, but as The Hollywood Reporter notes, Questlove has been tapped to direct the live-action remake of the Disney film The Aristocats, which was originally released in 1970 with music composed by Robert and Richard Sherman. Questlove will handle the music for the remake, which has a script written by Will Gluck (Peter Rabbit) and Keith Bunin (Onward).
“They chose I to chase the cat…,” Questlove wrote in an Instagram post announcing the news. “I basically have 2 life goals: 1. Don’t dismiss my dreams & 2. Get out of my own way.”
