Travolta Set For Cross-Dressing Hairspray Role

JOHN TRAVOLTA is in negotiations to play larger-than-life EDNA TURNBLAD in the upcoming HAIRSPRAY movie remake.

Transvestite DIVINE played the part in the original JOHN WATERS movie and the role has since been played by HARVEY FIERSTEIN and funnyman BRUCE VILANCH in the Broadway, New York musical version of the story.

Travolta's a favourite after befriending screenwriter LESLIE DIXON on the set of LOOK WHO'S TALKING NOW. Dixon has just been appointed the screenwriter of the new Hairspray film.
