"Footloose" Remake Loses Director, But Still On Track

Posted: October 26th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Footloose" Remake Loses Director, But Still On TrackSubmit Comment
Paramount Pictures is not giving up on the "Footloose" remake. Zac Efron was previously set to star and his "High School Musical" helmer Kenny Ortega was set to direct.

Efron then left the project, stating that he doesn't want to dance in movies anymore. And now Ortega has dropped out as well over difference with the studio on tone and budget.

Paramount has already replaced Efron with "Gossip Girl" star Chace Crawford and will now be searching for a new director. The goal is to keep the pic on track to start production in March. So the "Footloose" remake is still on.

Cancel this piece of sh*t, and make a live action Giant Hemmoroid vs Giant Turd movie. It would make more money.

It's been 100 years since I saw the original. This movie doesn't need to be remade (like so many these days). They left their mark... let people buy the original if they want.

Jesus Hollywood... where the hell has your originality gone?!

Next: RoboCop... the musical!? (although... not the worst suggestion we've seen come out of Hollywood).

I thought Footloose sucked. I didn't get it even if I liked the music. And my best days were in the 80's (not saying much, I know). A remake????

Hey mdp... the 80's were fab. my friend. Don't be shy to say so! Great music and movies.

Too much hair though (f*cking Flock of Seagulls!)

They could always do a sequel and call it Arseloose but they would have to get Zac Efron back!
