    Zac Efron to Get Footloose for Paramount - In film remake [an error occurred while processing this directive]

    Zac Efron may be graduating from High School Musical, but the youngster's career is moving full steam ahead. The actor will star in Paramount's recently fast-tracked remake of the 1984 musically-themed classic Footloose.

    Peter Sollett, the director of Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist, will rewrite the script. The film will aim to attract a demographic that's slightly older than typical HSM and Efron fans. Efron will receive a mid-level seven figure salary for the film and has script approval.

    Craig Zadan, who worked as a producer on the original film which made Kevin Bacon a household name and launched a mega-successful soundtrack, will also produce the remake. The remake will feature new tunes sprinkled among the classics.
