"Footloose" and "In the Heights" Musicals are Moving Forward

Posted: April 13th, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Footloose" and "In the Heights" Musicals are Moving ForwardSubmit Comment
Paramount Pictures is back on course with their "Footloose" remake, setting director Craig Brewer (Hustle and Flow, Black Snake Moan) to bring the movie to the big screen from his own re-written script. However, Brewer will have to find a new lead now that Chace Crawford is exiting the project due to scheduling conflicts with "Gossip Girl." The plan is to have the cameras rolling by this summer.

In addition, Universal Pictures is moving forward with the "In the Heights" musical and has hired writer Marc Klein to adapt the Tony Award-winning Broadway hit. Musical's creator Lin-Manuel Miranda will reprise his role in the movie.

Kenny Ortega (High School Musical), who was previously set to direct the "Footloose" remake, will direct "In the Heights." The new film spans three days in New York's Washington Heights neighborhood, where a bodega owner who inherited his grandmother's lottery windfall plots his retirement to a Dominican Republic beach. As he bids farewell to his customers on the block, he becomes conflicted about leaving behind a group that has become family.

This So You Think You're a High School Musical dance sh*t is way out of control! I can't figure out if this is just a result of America accepting homosexuality more or just a sign that this generation is so nutless that no one has the balls to say NO to fruity sh*te like this, Twatlight, or anything starring Miley Cyrus.

HUGE fan of In the Heights, and while I'm nervous of having Kenny Ortega behind the camera, I'm sure that Lin-Manuel's musical will be well-produced, especially since he is starring in it!
