"Adam Shankman is currently seeking treatment in a rehabilitation center. His friends and family support him and wish him well on his journey to recovery," the statement reads.
The reason for the treatment wasn't revealed.
Shankman, 49, has long been a sort of Renaissance man in Hollywood, juggling dance, directorial and other duties. In recent years he both directed and choreographed Hairspray and Rock of Ages.
He's also the man who could be credited for the ultimately doomed relationship between Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth. He was a producer on The Last Song, the romantic film that put the stars together.
"I sort of want a finder's fee for Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth," he joked to PEOPLE last year. "I'm scared at how beautiful those children are going to be."
