Swiss fest books John Travolta pic
ROME — “Hairspray” will unspool at the 60th Locarno Intl. Film Festival.
While neither protag John Travolta nor helmer Adam Shankman will make the trek, some key cast members are expected to be on hand for the non-competish screening of the tuner adaptation in the Swiss lakeside resort town’s 8,000-seat Piazza Grande.
A date for the Locarno “Hairspray” screening has not been set, making it impossible to determine whether pic will have its European preem at the fest.
Located in the Italian-speaking portion of Switzerland, the Locarno fest will run August 1-11.
