Hairspray heading to London?

Hairspray heading to London?

“Hairspray” director Adam Shankman tells Entertainment Weekly that Zac Efron will be back as teenage heartthrob Link for the recently greenlit sequel.

According to the filmmaker, the dancing teen will channel his inner Austin Powers and become steeped in the British Invasion. “We’re trying to track, in a comedic way, the historical elements.”

Nikki Blonsky will also be back for the sequel.

The film, which John Travolta won’t be returning for, will see Tracy Turnblad (Blonsky) and her pals as they navigate the “next era of music,” the late ’60s. “That period was superpolitical,” Shankman adds, “it was a time of serious change”.

The film is still a while off- Shankman’s yet to find anyone to write the thing.

“We just got an outline and some ideas from John Waters, and now we’re going out to writers”, he tells the website.
