Director Gives "Hairspray 2" Update

Director Gives "Hairspray 2" UpdateSubmit Comment
Back in July we reported that John Waters, the writer and director of the 1988 "Hairspray" film, was working on a script for the upcoming sequel to the 2007 "Hairspray."

Now, Entertainment Weekly had the chance to chat with director of last year's film Adam Shankman about the status of the follow-up. "We just got an outline and some ideas from John Waters, and now we're going out to writers," said Shankman.

The story will follow Tracy Turnblad (Nicole Blonsky) and her pals as they navigate the "next era of music," the late '60s. "That period was superpolitical," the helmer adds. "It was a time of serious change."

According to earlier reports, Zac Efron will likely return for the sequel, but John Travolta will probably not. "I think once is enough," Travolta said of playing Edna Turnblad. "I did it and I did it well, but I'm not a big sequel guy."

Are you looking forward to the sequel?

Oh, but we must have Zac Efron (sic) ... hmmmmm ... it's not like John Waters, the original director of the orignal movie, needs the money ... corporate suits see dollar signs. They should just rename it " High School Musical, 1950 ".

" Are you looking forward to the sequel ? " - Only if they dig up Divine's corpse, put it in the fatsuit and let Walken parody DeerHunter through it all ...

If Christopher Walken, James Marsden and Michelle Pfeiffer all return, then its more worth seeing. No John Travolta is disapointing though. He was the star of the first one.

Travolta just doesn't want to take the heat from gay right's groups again.

He calls that doing the part well? No, sir. I think not.

Travolta said, “I'm not a big sequel guy." Not a big sequel guy? Did he mean not a big sequel guy as in, “Staying Alive”, “Look Who’s Talking Too”, “Look Who’s Talking Now”, “Goldmember”, and “Be Cool?” And does anybody doubt that there is a sequel being worked up for “Wild Hogs” now? Not a big sequel guy indeed; when the $$$ is to his liking he will sign on the dotted line.
