Did Sinbad use Hairspray?

Did Sinbad use Hairspray?

Adam Shankman (“Bedtime Stories”, “Hairspray”) is in talks to direct “Sinbad”, the long-gestating revamp of the swashbuckling classic that Rob Cohen (“xXx”) was to helm.

The pic, says Variety, centers on Sinbad and his crew, who are marooned off the coast of China and embark on a quest to find the lamp of Aladdin.

When Cohen was attached Keanu Reeves was in talks to play the lead role.

Shankman is also on board “Bob the Musical” at Disney. That one centers on a mild-mannered man who suddenly hears the “inner song” of people’s hearts after being struck on the head.

“The idea of working with all original music is thrilling. With ‘Bob the Musical,’ I’ll be working again with (‘Hairspray’ composer) Marc Shaiman. And ‘Sinbad’ gives me the opportunity to really stretch my imagination as far as I can take it.”
