Footloose Footloose
First the Big Chill and now this. Paramount, in a move that makes me again wonder how little imagination Hollywood has left, has decided that a Footloose remake was in order. Why you ask? Well, I can't place my finger on it, but it does keep Zac Efron employed.

Paramount to Remake Footloose

Kenny Ortega will direct, Zac Efron will star, and Dylan Sellers will produce the remake of Footloose.

Ortega is in negotiations to helm and choreograph, and Efron is in talks to play Ren McCormack, the rebellious newcomer (originally played by Kevin Bacon) in a town where dancing has been banned.

The original was directed by Herb Ross off a script by Dean Pitchford.

Since Footloose was adapted into a Broadway musical, Paramount figures that they would adapt the musical back onto film... as a musical.

Efron, who appeared on the radar with Disney Channel's High School Musical, will be making his feature debut in Hairspray.

Stay tuned for updates.
