Subscribe to Filmibeat

Michelle Pfeiffer is in final talks to join the cast of New Line Cinema's adaptation of the hit Broadway musical comedy Hairspray directed by Adam Shankman and produced by Craig Zadan and Neil Meron. Hairspray is based on the 1988 John Waters comedy about star-struck teenagers on a local Baltimore dance show. The latest version will be based on New Line's Tony-winning Broadway adaptation of the film.

Pfeiffer would play Velma von Tussel, a former beauty queen (Miss Baltimore Crabs) who can't move on and who is the producer of the dance show. She joins John Travolta as Edna Turnblad, Queen Latifah as Motormouth Maybelle, Amanda Bynes as Penny Pingleton, Brittany Snow as Amber von Tussel, Zac Efron as Link Larkin, Elijah Kelley as Seaweed, and newcomer Nikki Blonsky as Tracy Turnblad.

Hairspray is being directed by Adam Shankman and produced by Craig Zadan and Neil Meron. Production is scheduled to begin in the fall, with a Dec. 21, 2007, release date.
