Scarlett Johansson will tap into her feline side later this year when she plays Maggie the Cat on Broadway.

Producers have announced the Tony Award-winning actress will star in a revival of Tennessee Williams's Cat On A Hot Tin Roof. It will be Scarlett's first time back on Broadway since winning a Tony in the Arthur Miller play A View From A Bridge opposite Liev Schreiber in 2010.

Benjamin Walker, who starred in Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson, will play her husband, and Debra Monk will be Big Mama.

The new Cat On A Hot Tin Roof will begin previews at the Richard Rodgers Theatre on December 18 and open on January 17. It marks the play's fifth revival on Broadway.
