"ALW says Hooper did not want anyone involved with the movie who was involved with the stage show."

Seems to me that If ALW didn't want the movie to be made without the involvement of any of the creatives from the stage production, he could have made that stipulation clear as part of the sale of the movie rights, and could have refused to sell to any studio that didn't agree. Perhaps he could have insisted that Trevor Nunn be hired as co-director of the CATS movie along with whatever established film director was chosen. I have read that the MAMMA MIA! people wouldn't sell those movie rights unless the director of the stage production was hired to direct the movie. The rights holders can stipulate anything they want, and any studio is free to accept or not go through with the project and leave the rights for another studio to buy.
