Yet another musical movie in the wings, this time it's also a sequel to a remake, or a sequel to a reimagining, not sure which one it comes under. Following last years Hairspray starring Nikki Blonsky, John Waters has been asked to write a treatment for a sequel.
Not being a huge musical fan (my only experience of Rocky Horror is Richard's drunken singing) I'm not sure if this is good news or not.
According to Variety, through Rope of Silicon, New Line Cinema have asked John Waters to come up with a treatment for a sequel to Hairspray. The film would follow on from the last one, and catch up with the family again.
Due back for the sequel are director Adam Shankman and songwriters Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman, they will also be writing new songs for the sequel. They also hope to get all the main cast members back including John Travolta, Christopher Walken, Nikki Blonsky, Zac Efron, Queen Latifah, Michelle Pfeiffer, James Marsden, Amanda Bynes, Elijah Kelley and Allison Janney. Problem being that it would seem none of them had sequels in their contract, so it may take a while.
Any Hairspray fans out there? Did you like last years version? Do you want to see another?
