Shankman has choreographed numerous movies as good as one among the Spice Girls’ tours. He’s directed several feature-length movies, including “A Walk to Remember”, “Bringing Down the House”, as well as the 2007 remake of “Hairspray”.

Before directing Hairspray, Shankman was known in Hollywood mainly as a script doctor. His hallmarks in his movies frequently comes with a singing/dancing sequence as well as a character becoming sent to do community service. “I have done a lot of things I am not super-proud of,” he declared in a interview together with the La Times. Having ultimately received a plum directing part in Hairspray, he added, “Now that I am ultimately actually proud of something, if [critics] say this one is not great either, it’ll be kind of…taxing.” In August 2008, Box office Mojo reported that Hairspray had become the fourth-biggest grossing American film musical inside the preceding 30 years. Shankman, in association with ABC, worked on a TV pilot called Harmony of a musical town. In 2008, in the aftermath of former small town mayor Sarah Palin’s appearance on the national political stage, Shankman was declared as director for the planned TV series Cadillac Ranch in regards to the female mayor of a small town.

1[In response to Kevin Naff's (editor of The Washington Blade) proposed boycott of film "Hairspray" (2007) by gays, which claimed star John Travolta had "no business" playing an iconic gay character] "I am stunned this has gotten that far. He (Naff) has made the dumbest claims on the entire planet. Everybody involved in 'Hairspray' - all the creators are gay. So John has no problem with people being gay - me, the writers, composer, John Waters - all gay. John's personal beliefs never walked onto my set. I never heard the word 'Scientology.'"
1Went to Palisades High School in Los Angeles, California.
2While a guest on NPR's "Fresh Air With Terry Gross" in July 2007, Shankman revealed to Gross that he did not start dancing until he was 18, which is very late for someone who intends to become a professional dancer. Furthermore, once he decided to become a dancer, he auditioned for college dance programs all over the country, including NYU, North Carolina, and Julliard (the most prestigious and selective dance program in the United States), and he got into all of them without ever once having taken a dance class.
