Zac Efron Quits "Footloose" Remake

Posted: March 23rd, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Zac Efron Quits "Footloose" RemakeSubmit Comment
Zac Efron has been very proud about taking over for Kevin Bacon in the upcoming "Footloose" remake. But now that his career has been given a boost thanks to "High School Musical 3" and "Hairspray," Efron feels that he needs to move away from musicals.

NY Daily News is reporting that Efron has now officially declined the "Footloose" offer and was given the chance to do so thanks to a conveniently timed rewrite in the script that created a loophole in the contract.

"People had been working on this project since last July," a member of the production team said. "We were all shocked."

Looking toward the future, it is very unlikely that Efron will want to take on any more musicals. He has currently wrapped "Me and Orson Welles" and "17 Again."

i thought he would've quit musicals after doing it once...or twice....or thrice heh....'17 again' looks like an alternate '13 going on 30' but backwards on the age change....also kinda like 'big' but backwards there too
