Adam Shankman, the helmer behind the musical , is in negotiations to direct , the follow-up to Disney’s musically inclined 2007 fantasy that starred Amy Adams.
Adams is expected to return for the sequel.
Sources say is set 10 years after the first movie, with Giselle finding herself questioning her happily-ever-after life and accidentally triggering events that make everyone's lives turn upside down in both the real world and in the animated kingdom of Andalasia.Shankman's resume seems ideal for a sequel along the same lines as the original - a comedic musical fantasy. He not only did Hairspray, but also Rock of Ages, episodes of Glee and the romance films A Walk to Remember, The Wedding Planner and the family films Bedtime Stories and The Pacifier.
There's a good chance this movie will be filling one of those slots of "Untitled Live Action Fairy Tale."
Fitting that it will be around the time of the 10th anniversary... 10 years after the first movie, just when the story is to be set.
