I have to get into the Cinema School right now. I've heard they wanted to remake Footloose, but I thought it was a dirty rumor. But now, that damn Zac (Demon child) has cause rotten crux in the movie world. They want to do, now!
After watching Zac Efron and director Kenny Ortega deliver a $42 million opening weekend for "High School Musical 3," Paramount Pictures has fast-tracked "Footloose," hoping to get the film ready for Efron and Ortega to start production next spring.
Unlike "HSM3," "Footloose" will aim for an older teen and adult demo. Efron is just about set in a deal that will pay him a mid-seven-figure salary and give him script approval.
Why! Why! Why! How are they going to tell the same tale. What town bans dancing these days? Remake Xanadu or Fast Forward, but not Footloose, I hated Footloose...but loved Kevin Bacon.
