Hairspray 2: White Lipstick -- Official Movie Title!

Hairspray 2: White Lipstick -- Official Movie Title!

Hairspray director Adam Shankman spilled the beans about the sequel to New Line’s blockbuster movie-musical and just how Zac Efron and Brittany Snow fit into the big picture.

Hairspray 2: White Lipstick is the sequel’s official movie title, which was actually the original title for 1998’s Hairspray. Shankman dished to MTV on more of teen idol Zac, 21, and less of Brittany, 22. Here’s what he had to say:

On Link Larkin getting hooked on acid: “I think that’s probably part of the treatment that won’t get used. And in the treatment, [Efron’s drug use] is an accident. That’s the kind of stuff where you’re like: ‘Yeah, I don’t know if that’s going to work.’”

On who will take the place of the Von Tussles, the villians of the movie: “There’ll be a change in villains. [John Waters’ treatment] is ideas that we’re just going to pick and choose from, and we’ll see what happens with it. Probably [no Michelle Pfeiffer]. Not because we didn’t love her, but because we just thought different adversaries [would be necessary].”

On the Vietnam War backdrop: “No, it wasn’t Zac.”

    dont do Hairspray 2 coz its loser movie and i dont like it

    doo any movie with vanessa

    plz dont do that to ur g.f

  • Katty

    I have no idea what the hell any of that meant, and I think they shouldn’t make a remake. If it was a good script and storyline, but from this article, I don’t think it will be very good. I hope Zac doesn’t sign on to this movie if it is going to bomb. He really needs to make the right decisions on what movies to be in if he wants to make it big in this business. I would usually go for it, but I don’t think this storyline even makes sense.

  • Sarah

    Hairspray 2 sounds so dumb. I really hope that Zac doesn’t do the movie. First because he and Nikki don’t look good together at all and I think the movie sounds lame. I love Zac and I don’t want to see him get pulled into the musicals again since he said he didn’t want to do them anymore. I love him in musicals but I don’t want him in Hairspray 2. I doubt I make any sense but I just don’t want Zac to do the movie. It sounds like a horrible sequel.

  • http://Zacefron Zac Efron”s #! Fan

    #10 I agree

  • jo

    why are they trying to do hairspray 2. LEAVE HAIRSPRAY ALONE!

  • zanessa fan

    i don’t understand zac…the movie is so ugly!!!! does somewhere know if zac and vanessa are still together??? for the correct answer of my question pls send me an email to mariechen369@web.de or comment under mine…pls pls pls

  • Natasha

    YAY! Nikki is annoying and ugly. Brittany seems really nice and is super pretty!! ;]

  • kiersten

    It sounds like he’s trying to use Zac’s popularity to make this movie a hit. Not everything should be made into a sequal, and I’m afraid this is one of them.

  • http://www.youtube.com jayana

    tottaly agree with you kiersten-15# it does seem like that!
    hope he does not do the movie!!!!!!!!!!

  • http://Zacefron Zac Efron”s #! Fan

    I hope this Movie never Happens

  • Jessica

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO ZAC PLEASE DON’T!!!!!!!!!!! I’m begging YOU!!!!! Everyone lets all sign that we won’t let Zac do the movie!! The plot is stupid, but Im glad they dumped the “Zac on drugs thingy” Cuz that would be really stupid of him to do. HSM is still to close, he can’t do something like that yet. He have to wait, maybe 2 years, and then he can be the new James Bond and I woulden’t care (I’d just hope to get the part of that movies Bond babe xD)
    And when i walk into that cinema, Im gonna need a bag ….
    CUZ IM GONNA PUKE WHEN I SEE YOU KISS NIKKI !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    EWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW I DON’T WANT A KISSING SCENE!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Zac is theres a kissing scene, GET THEM TO TAKE IT OUT!!! Nikki you’re weird and totally obsessed with Zac, you got a HUGE crush on him its so obvious …..
    TAKE A FREAKING NUMBER NIKKI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    We all know Vanessa comes first,
    and you must be THE LAST on the list!!!!!!!!!!!

    no no no!!!

    this cant be happening

    hairspray 2:white lipstick wtf???

    ugh dammit!!

    IF BRITANNYS NOT GONNA BE INIT I AINT ONA WATCH IT!!

  • http://www.youtube.com shantelle

    zac DAMMIT!!

    DONT DO THIS MOVIE!!

    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE!!!!

  • lovebug :)

    i think this sequel should go in another direction. they are still trying to keep the main characters the focus of this movie, which nikki would love, and i’m sure zac is not a fan of. they should just not bother writing link into the movie.

    they should follow another character and their bond with tracy, like a quid pro quo thing, nikki helped seaweed out with the race thing, seaweed should help tracy with the weight thing (only saying that because it was said that a possible script idea would be that tracy gets made fun of for not losing the weight) and just roll with that and have her do the drugs, all in an effort to lose weight.

  • just me

    Brittany is definately going to be in the sequel I know this for a fact. Jared didn’t mean that she is going to be in the movie less. The paragraph could have been written better because it could be interpreted that way (that she won’t be in the movie much). What he meant was that when Adam talked to MTV he talked a lot more about how Zac will fit into the movie, but he talked less about how Brittany will fit in. She is definately going to be in it and I’m sure she will have a pretty big part as she did last time. My guess is she wont be the bad guy this time, but perhaps part of the gang of friends!

    zac
    my dearest hottest crush
    i love you more than anything
    your soo damn HOT

    DONT DO THIS MOVIE!! :(

    1)ZAC DONT LOOK GOOD WITH NIKKI SO IT RUINS THE MOVIE

    2)NIKKI MAKE THE MOVIE WORSE THAN IT ALREADY IS

    3)BRITANNY HAS TO BE INIT OR ELSE ITS GONNA BE crap!

    4)AMANDA IS AMAZING AND SHE HAS TO BE INIT!

    5)JOHN TRAVOLTA WONT BE DOING IT ANYWAY BECAUSE
    HIS SON JUST PAST AWAY!

    6)ZAC WONT TAKE DRUGS FOR THIS MOVIE AS IT COULD
    JEPRODIZE HIS CAREER.

    7)AS WITH ABOUT 8-9 WEEKS OF FILMING ZAC COULD BECOME
    MORE CLOSE WITH NIKKI!

    8)VANESSA IS GONNA BE PISSED!

    9)HAIRSPRAY WAS A GREAT BROADWAY PLAY UNTIL NIKKI CAME ALONG AND SPOILT IT

    10)MICHELLE IS AMAZING AND CANNOT BE REPLACED!

    and thats why zac shouldnt do hairspray 2..

  • http://www.youtube.com shantelle

    nikkie and zac dont look good together

    zac do a movie with vanessa

    and he should make the right desisons.

    x

  • zac is a rat

    Bet Zac can’t wait to lock lips with Nikki again and be back working with her.

  • http://fully Rachel

    I like the fact that a day after JJposts about HS2 this appears… What a coincidence.

    Honestly, I think it still sounds shockingly bad. I hate when people think something is good just because a supposed ‘genius’ wrote it. Waters is a freak, he’s so not as good as he is made out to be, and this apparent amazing plot and treatment he’s done shows just that.

    Why spoil a good thing, oh wait…money. That is the only reason. Adam know Zac’a name sells and that’s the only reason they keep throwing his name around. It’s so irritating, and I really hope Zac doesn’t do this. I’m all for Footloose, but this is a trainwreck. John did in fact say he would not be doing it, Adam is just trying to big up the film. Hairspray fans are up in arms over it, that screams Epic Fail to me. As for not wanting
    Britney, well I think that’s horrid as she is one of the only ones (besides Nikki) actually keen to do it again.

    Gahh it just screams bad to me, I hope Zac stays far far away.

  • http://fully Lucy

    #22 it was a movie you idiot. Just like V kisses that guy in Bandslam. It’s what actors do. Grow up.

    As for HS2….no no and hell no. The plot is awlful and it doesn’t need a sequal. Leave Hairspray alone!!!

    5 REASONS WHY ZAC SHOULD’NT DO HAIRSPRAY 2. :(

    1-HIM AND NIKKI DONT LOOK GOOD TOGETHER. :(

    2-NIKKI RUINS THE FILM. :(

    3-HAIRSPRAY WAS A GREAT BROADWAY MUSICAL UNTIL NIKKI CAME
    ALONG AND KILLED IT. :(

    4-ZAC SHOULD BACK AWAY FROM MUSICALS AND FOCAS ON ANOTHER GENERE. :(

    5-IT COULD SOMEHOW RUIN HIS RELATIONSHIP WITH VANESSA.

    DONT DON HS2….ZAC PLEASE:(

    :(

  • http://www.youtube.com ALEX

    this movie sounds crap.
    zac dont do it.
    nikki please dont flirt with zac. :(

    ZANESSA 4 EVER
    XOX

  • http://www.youtube.com shantelle

    ZANESSA ALWAYS AND FOREVER!

  • http://fully Will

    children please calm down. This has nothing to do with him and Vanessa. Those two are strong and they love each other too much to get someone as stupid as Nikki get in the way.

    This is about the plot. As a fan of the original I wasn’t too thrilled to see them do a movie musical to begin with. It surprised me in that it was good, but this just sounds horrific, and I’m sure no amount of hype will get me and thousand of Hairspray fans to think differently. The ending was perfect, why try and continue it only to end it again, it should be left alone. And no I don’t care if Waters is writing it, he’s a crack pot now anyway, I wouldn’t trust his judgement at all. Zac should stay well clear of this for sure.

  • http://fully Lucy

    ge’ez stop moving the posts. My last post was directed at That ‘rat’freak, not the sensible post of Lovebug, who is now #22!!

  • http://www.youtube.com bay

    ok people chill
    its just a movie big deal.
    and just cause nikki kisses zac in the movie
    vanessa also kisses some guy in her new
    movie.
    zanessa are gonna kiss other people besides
    each other FOR MOVIES..

    in reality there in love..just leave it at that.
    there relatshionship has over come many
    obstacles so it wont be a big deal for zac kissing
    nikki.

    if you guys were really zanessa supporter or zac supporters
    you should be happy for him no matter what he does!

    goodluck zac :)

    think of it like this
    zac does this movie gets lots of money
    buys a house vanessa moves in..and they start
    a family together..hehe..xD (it could happen you know :))

    xox
    peace guys
    xox
    good luck to everyone in hs2.

  • jaded

    please let Zac have the good sense to avoid this project like the plague.

  • Roxana

    I AM NOT WATCHING IT!!! SORRY, I LOVE ZAC, BUT I THINK HE IS MAKING THE WRONG DECISION………..AND YES ZANESSA FOREVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!And ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • joss

    a sequel simply just won’t work…i mean the first one was alrite, but to make a sequel is just wrong.

    sure some may want to see more of zac, but i think even for his fans would like to see him do movies that wouldn’t suck, and im sure no one would want to see any more of nikki…

  • http://fully Martha

    I think Zac would look weird as Link now. I mean he looked great as Link, and I know he gained weight to play him, but he is so skinny now and his face has thinned and matured, he would look very odd, especially with the black hair. lol

    Anway, aside from that. It just sounds awlful and I think Adam is seeing $ signs more than anything. I think Zac needs to stay clear of this, he really needs to think about peoples reactions to this, and from what I’m seeing 99.9% are saying a big No!!!

    I love Zac and I do support him, and I trust him to make his own choice, I mean it’s his life and he has to live with it. I just think this would be a big mistake.

  • marina
  • zanessa4everr

    NOOO! ZAC DONT DO IT!! hairspray 2 is just pushing it too far!! i HATE nikki!

  • Katty

    I think Zac should continue to do musicals, actors who can not only act, and can do other things like dance and sing well like Zac are really respected in the acting community. But I am not for HS2

  • Jessie

    i don’t want zac to do hairspray 2 :(
    I HATE NIKKI! she ruin the hairspray :( fake nikki!
    i think zac didn’t look so good because vanessa is not next to him LOL
    i think brittany look so much older than 22.
    LOVE ZAC AND VANESSA & ZANESSA FOREVER~

  • lozzie

    yay cant wait to see hairspray 2!!! :)

  • http://teamhudgens.org/ ayen

    Out of all the actress in the world, you guys are scared that Zac would end up with Nikki? Are you all for real?

    Seriously, why would Vanessa even loose sleep over Nikki? If Vanessa and Zac breaks up, then that’s that. There’s many good looking men in Hollywood. There’s even better looking men outside of it. Zac’s not the only man in the universe.

    This is my last post in JJJ. Goodluck with your career Zac in whatever you do.

  • elenee

    i love Zac alot.
    but i don’t think he should be in Hairspray..
    and apparently, alot of people agree as well..

  • Carrie

    OK this move sounds more and more stupid every time they release information about it. Personally I dont think any of the cast members should sign on for it if they want to continue having a successful career. Not every movie needs a sequel and HS is one of them!

  • johanna

    i don’t think they should do HS2……. zac should do other things then musicals to get more older fans to and and just the idea of hairspray 2 is bad, it was a-one-time-movie……

  • JZLOVER

    I love zac but i honestly dont think he should do this movie.out of all these comments i dont think this movie is gonna do well in the box office and i dont want to see one of zacs movies do bad in the box office.i know i wouldnt go see it.i dont trust nikki.i trust zanessa and i support them but i think nikki can pull them a part or try to.dont get me wrong i like nikki just not with zac.nikki if ur reading this i dont want you to get hurt soo just go find a boyfriend that is not takken yet and get over zac cause hes not gonna leave vanessa for anything.
    xxxooxxoo zanessa forever xxooxxoo

  • laughalot

    fine, do what you want , we’ll just see the after effect of this movie…
    ugh, I need to cover my innocent eyes

  • dearie

    I don’t think Adam is thinking of Zac’s career at all, just getting to work with him again.
    Personally I think Adam has as big of a crush on Zac as Nikki does…:puke:
