Zac Efron does “FOOTLOSE”

Zac Efron

Say it ain’t so… Don’t get me wrong I am a big fan of Zac Efron, but a FOOTLOSE remake? This can only mean one thing: I’m getting old!!!! I still love the Kevin Bacon version how can they already be making another one? The only reassuring thing is that I didn’t actually see “Footlose” at the theaters when it first came out…
Other than my fear of getting old, I am secretly excited about this news.

Having Zac Efron put on his “dancing shoes” as Ren McCormack (originally played by Kevin Bacon) is something I’d like to see. In addition, Kenny Ortega (High School Musical 1 & 2) is in negotiation to direct the remake.

Of course nothing is official yet as far as Zac Efron appearing in “Footlose.”

Quick plot reminder, “Footlose” is about a rebellious teen, Ren McCormack who moves into a town where dancing and listening to anything other than classical music has been banned.

I am a big fan of the original so if this remake ever sees the light of day, I’ll make sure to check it out.
