Hairspray is based on a 2002 Broadway musical, which in turn was also based on the 1988’s Hairspray. However, the script is borrowed more from the 2002 play than the 1988 movie. After the 2002 musical won eight Tony awards in 2003, New Line Cinema showed an interest in turning the Broadway musical into a movie. The casting took some time, many auditions (Nikki Blonsky), and much persuasion (John Travolta) and this is why the movie was only released in 2007.
