Todd Graff Helming Parker in Slammer
January 13, 2006
Revolution Studios has set Todd Graff to direct Slammer, a dark comedy that will star Sarah Jessica Parker, says Variety. The film will shoot this fall in New York.
Parker plays a pushy publicist who lands in jail. At Sing Sing, she produces an inmate musical. Marc Shaiman will write the prison play's tunes.
Graff replaces Adam Shankman, who is now directing and choreographing the movie version of the hit stage musical Hairspray for New Line.
Sara Goodman wrote the script, based on a story by Tim Metcalfe and John Slotnick.
