“Hairspray 2″ British Invasion Plot

Hairspray 2 will focus on America’s British music invasion of the 1960s.

The follow-up to the popular 2007 movie musical will see Tracy Turnblad and her friends as they move into the “next era of music,” director Adam Shankman tells Entertainment Weekly.

“That period was superpolitical, it was a time of serious change. We’re trying to track, in a comedic way, the historical elements.”
