Wayne McGregor to choreograph big-screen adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Cats

  • Arts Foundation Fellow Wayne McGregor is choreographing the new film adaptation of Cats, directed by Academy Award-winning director Tom Hooper (Les Misérables, The King's Speech). Produced by Working Title Films / Universal Studios, the film is adapted from the stage musical by Andrew Lloyd Webber, based on ‘Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats’ by T.S. Eliot.

    McGregor, the Royal Ballet’s resident choreographer, will now take the reins as the musical transfers to the big screen. Studio Wayne McGregor has issued an open casting call for ensemble performers in the film, which is being produced by Working Title Films and Universal Studios.
    The film will commence shooting in November.
