"Hairspray" Sequel is Officially Dead

Posted: June 2nd, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Hairspray" Sequel is Officially DeadSubmit Comment
Director Adam Shankman has confirmed that there will not be a follow-up to the popular 2007 remake of "Hairspray," which starred John Travolta and Zac Efron.

"I'm going to kill that rumor now, that got killed," said Shankman. "It's ok, I was so happy with the first one, let's leave well enough alone. It's all good."

This comes as a bit of a surprise since the first film grossed over $200 million in worldwide ticket sales on a $75 million budget. "Hairspray" was also well-received by critics, having a 91% fresh rating on RottenTomatoes.

Hmm, thinking of going back to church, seeing as how there's now new evidence for the existence of a kind and benevolent god.

This is a SURPRISE, but the only problem I have with WP opinion (or report of the writer's opinion) is that the STUDIO greenlights the sequel, not the director.

There would be no NEED for a sequel, other than MONEY.

And unless Divine comes from the grave, takes a squat, eats his sh*t and says, " Hey, Johnny, let's make Polyester 2, you mincy little thing !", then this rumor is another pain in the prick that loves to float in Hollywood like a turd in the community pool.
