Photo Flash: Sneak Peek at the Hairspray Film

Hairspray, New Line Cinema's upcoming film version of the Broadway smash, is currently in production for a July 20th release.

The film will star newcomer Nikki Blonsky as heroine Tracy Turnblad, who helps to integrate a Baltimore dance show and wins the heart of Link Larkin in the process.  Hairspray's star-studded cast will also feature John Travolta as Edna Turnblad, Allison Janney as Prudy Pingleton, Christopher Walken as Wilbur Turnblad, Queen Latifah as Motormouth Maybelle, Michelle Pfeiffer as Velma Von Tussle, Brittany Snow as Amber Von Tussle, Zac Efron as Link Larkin, Elijah Kelley as Seaweed, and James Marsden as Corny Collins.

Produced by Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, who previously brought Chicago to the big screen as an Oscar-winning movie musical, Hairspray will be directed by Adam Shankman.  The film will feature a screenplay by Leslie Dixon, who will adapt it from Thomas Meehan and Mark O'Donnell's original book, as well as a score by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman, who will contribute new songs to their existing Tony Award-winning score.
