Cancelled Movies. Wiki

Note: Please do not add “Michael Jackson died in June 2009” because this was before his death happened.

Before Scott Bakula was cast in the 1997 film Cats Don't Dance, Michael Jackson was going to be cast as the lead role, Daniel "Danny" cat, as well as to be the composer of the music and choreography. [1]


The plot would presumably be the same as the 1997 version that was released.

Why this Version Was Cancelled[]

  1. Michael Jackson dropped out of the project for unknown reasons, and had ceased to be generally involved in the film.


  • Michael Jackson was later replaced with Scott Bakula as the voice of Danny.
  • Cats Don't Dance was released without Michael Jackson starring.
  • The Michael Jackson version of Cats Don't Dance was permanently cancelled.
