Zefron To Cut Footloose Finally!

| Filed under: Film FlickersZac Efron


The producers of the Footloose remake want a ride on the Zac Efron train while it's hot!

After learning that High School Musical 3 opened to gigantor numbers, they put the Zaquisha starring Footloose on the fast track, says Variety.

It's scheduled to go into production in the spring of 2009.

Zacquisha will reportedly earn a mid-seven-figure salary for the flick!!!!

He's also going to have script approval.

Way to flex those defined muscles, Z!

Peter Sollett, who directed Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist (one of our fave movies of the year!), has been brought on board to boss Zacquisha and crew around on the set of Footloose.

We're excited about the remake!

    Why why why do they need to remake fucking everything. Oh fuck it put Zac in it! I guess we are gong to have to see this dudes face for the next five or more years until everyone gets sick of him. What the fuck ever. HOLLYWOOD is so lame!

  12. 12

    Wow, is there really nothing going on in the world of hot gossip today?

    I hate remakes, the only okay remake was Willy Wonka and that was because Johnny DEPP was in it. I think this can mess up his career but, then again he is probably made to only make stupid musicals and stuff, not all that taleknt and do not see him making serious movies.

  14. 14

    AWWWWW…….congrats to the little pillow biter!!!!

  18. 18

    hope it doesn't suck

  19. 19

    NO REMAKE,…. Make your own career without having to "redo" others …. so sad to be a shadow.

  20. 20

    Call me old school, but there's no remaking an American original.

  21. 21


  22. 22

  23. 23

  24. 24

    umm, how can they remake such a good film? i know he's really hot, but that's such an irreplaceable movie!!

  25. 25

    If I was gay, I would SO do him… wait, does saying "IF I WAS GAY" make me gay?

    is there ANYTHING going on BESIDES zaquisha or sara palin?

  26. 26

    Re: Pocahontas – Are you using Hat as a metphor?

  27. 27

    Why do they need to remake this film? It is perfect the way it is? Also - it has kind of an 80s theme…

    They should do osmething original.

  28. 28

    enough remakes… seriously

    You cant remake Footloose, just like you cant remake Breakfast Club…

  29. 29

    no no no….efron cannot replace bacon

  30. 30

    its not really that great of a movie, but he really is perfect for the role.

  31. 31

    Re: Major Dude – Around here, yeah it does, your GAY, pain in the ass ain't it.

  32. fifi says – reply to this


    ya but seriously i hope it's cool like the first one. and not some choreographed bullshit dance routines like high school musical.

  33. 33

    Re: Pocahontas – NO WORRIES!

  34. 34

    Mr. BBD

    thanks for the clarification. next thing you know, I'll be a democrat too…

    oh the shame!

    but still, he is a cute lil' f'er!

  35. 35

    Y A W N!

  36. 36

    Re: gir7000

    Totally agree.
    And no one can bust a move like Kevin Bacon

  37. 37

    Hey fatty!!! I don't what's more gross Zac Efron giving anal or you!!!!

  38. 38

    This is the best gossip you can come up with well I guess you can suck on his tiny peen!!!!!

  39. 39

    Why does Zac wear his pants so low?

  40. 40

    It will be awful.

  41. 41

    No, not excited about the remake. Do something new and original. Leave the classics alone! Nothing against Zac, but come on people, what are they gonna remake Grease next? That would be an insult. You leave perfection alone!!!!

  42. 42

    The 1984 movie was an 80s classic, so I don't see the point of remaking it, but they are doing it as musical in the same way that "Hairspray" was made into a musical and that worked very well, so they can do the same with "Footloose". I never imagined anyone taking over the role that made Kevin Bacon famous, but if anyone else, Zac Efron can cut it.

  43. 43

    Noooooooooooooo! Kevin Bacon forever!

    Poo, this is a bad idea!

  44. sushi says – reply to this


    I'll never understand this kid's appeal. He's not that hot without his makeup, he might be "cut" but he's too skinny. He can't act, can't sing. He all around fucking sucks.

  45. 45

    hell yeah!!! I loved FOOTLOOSE!! and who will complain about watching Zac dancing around, hopefully shirtless??!! as long as this project does not include Vaness H, of course =)

  46. 46

    Love the original FOOTLOOSE!

    I can see where he would be a good choice for the role.
    I think he'll do a good job.

  47. 47

    Umm…couldn't be less excited actually.

  48. 48

    OMG I FUCKING LOVE FOOTLOOSE!!!!!! BEST MOVIE EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  49. 49

    That is the STUPIDEST decision he could have made. Zac says he wants to follow in Leo's footsteps but then he goes and does one of the cheesiest remakes known to man. Sweetie you're still playing to the Disney crowd. You'll never stomp with the big dogs if you continue that path.

  50. 50

    Wow. Don't cream your manties now, Perez.

  51. 51

    I'd do me.

  52. 52

    There are no original ideas left in Hollywood.

  53. 53

    anything with zac sounds good to me! and if hes as hot as he was in hairspray, i can hardly wait!

  54. 54

    Why Footloose?!?!

    Stop remaking shit and try coming up with some original.

  55. 55

    Remember when women could not vote?
    Remember when african americans were slaves?
    Remember when Whites cannot marry Chinese?
    Let's make discrimination a thing of the past.
    Time to move this country forward.
    Everyone has the right to love!

  59. 59

    a REMAKE OF FOOTLOOSE?! what the fuck. hollywood is so pathetic now. i mean, honestly? can they not think of new ideas? everyone has already seen footloose and why would we wanna watch this talentless douche nugget play such a good role

  60. 60

    Can't wait :) Zac will make it great

  61. 61

    never had much appeal…i guess i'm too old for young men like him. but i think this is actually a good fit, and probably a pretty good remake.

  62. 62

    i luv u zac!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  63. 63

    heck yes!!!

  64. 64

    Ugh, remakes. No one comes up with any original ideas anymore… I don't know which is worse, this or the farting dog movie… oh well. I might see it because I loved Nick and Norah! xx

  65. 65

    O…M…G!!! *stares at picture*

  66. 66

    Yess!!! Can't wait!
    Anything with Zac in it is good!!
    So hott!

  67. 67

    im so excited for this movie !
    im obsessed with Zac and Footloose is an amazing movie
    he's a really good dancer and singer so i think it could be good to give
    Footloose some modernization. :)
