One Direction’s Zayn Malik will feature in an upcoming film's voice cast, alongside Bridgerton’s Simone Ashley.
Comedian Mo Gilligan, Slow Horses actress Sophie Okonedo, Love Actually legend Bill Nighy and Ted Lasso’s Jeremy Swift will also star according to Deadline.
10 Lives is about Beckett, a pampered cat who takes his lifestyle and nine lives for granted.
After losing his ninth life he begs to be given a second chance to show he can learn from his mistakes.

Eventually, he’s given another chance but with certain rules in place.
London-based production company Taost has acquired Chinese distribution rights for the film as part of its plans to expand into the East.
Zayn’s daughter Khai, three, who he shares with ex Gigi Hadid, will no doubt be thrilled to hear her dad’s famous voice in the animated movie.
It’s the star’s first on-screen presence as he branches out his talents following three solo albums since he left One Direction in 2015.

He’s no stranger to the movie business though after supplying the soundtrack for Fifty Shades Darker in 2017 and Aladdin in 2019.
The movie news comes just a few days after Zayn was spotted in London with a fan.
