Zac Efron to Kick Off His Sunday Shoes?

by | July 11, 2007 | Comments

Say what you will about Zac Efron, but the singing, dancing teen idol certainly isn’t afraid of typecasting: not only will the "High School Musical" (and "High School Musical 2") star spend the summer shimmying and warbling as part of the cast of Adam Shankman‘s "Hairspray" remake, but he is in talks to hit the ceiling (or tear up this town) in a musical remake of "Footloose."

As film trends go, this whole "musical remake" thing is arguably more palatable than, say, torture porn; still, this project strikes us as something better suited for a cable network or the direct-to-video market. On the other hand, it isn’t like the original "Footloose" is exactly hallowed ground, and it has been awhile since a Kenny Loggins-related movie has made it to the big screen.

Efron in next week’s "Hairspray"

Efron’s "High School Musical" director, Kenny "Newsies" Ortega, is slated to direct and choreograph the remake, and Dylan Sellers ("Agent Cody Banks 2: Destination London") will produce.

[And for you screaming fans who simply can’t wait to get enough of Efron — who’s certainly making the most of the recent surge in film musical popularity — check him out next week in "Hairspray." His Link Larkin is, like, the most!]
