Plans for the much-anticipated sequel to the 2007 hit civil rights musical Hairspray are off, director Adam Shankman tells the Press Association. Shankman was set to direct actors Zac Efron, Michelle Pfeiffer, and John Travolta, as frumpy housewife Edna Turnblad in the project, the screenplay of which was to be based on a treatment by John Waters, who directed the 1988 film from which the musical was adapted. "I'm going to kill that rumor now, that got killed," Shankman says. "It's OK, I was so happy with the first one, let's leave well enough alone. It's all good."
