-Plans for a sequel to the hit musical movie, “Hairspray” are under way…but what will happen in the sequel you ask? MTV Movies talked with producer Marc Shaiman about creator John Waters’ outline/treatment for the movie. It is quite interesting.
As for the plot, he said: “People hate Tracy (Nikki Blonsky) because she doesn’t lose weight. They ask ‘Now that you’re famous, why won’t you lose weight?’. And Link (Efron) experiments with drugs. Throughout half the movie, he has an ongoing dialogue with three pimples on his forehead.”
“Edna (John Travolta) loses weight, but sees her husband (Christopher Walken) lusting after fat women,” Shaiman laughed, citing one of the musical numbers he’s particularly eager to write. “And so, she finally breaks down and runs over to a snack table. Just within one number, she gets fat again; gaining 20 pounds at a time. [Her fat] pops out, and by the end of the song she’s completely at her old weight again.”
Wow…if that happens it will be quite interesting. What do you think? Read the rest of the article HERE.
