Footloose Remake Fast Tracked

— Posted by Rodney

FootloosebigpicWe have news today that the Footloose film may be thrust upon us sooner than expected thanks to the success of HSM 3. We get the following scoop from IESB:

Variety is reporting that After watching Zac Efron and director Kenny Ortega deliver a $42 million opening weekend for “High School Musical 3,” Paramount Pictures has fast-tracked “Footloose,” hoping to get the film ready for Efron and Ortega to start production next spring.

I can only guess that the people making the Footloose remake assume that dancing is currently “hot” with the kids. They also may want to beat the Fame remake to the punch.

It’s only a matter of time before Dirty Dancing gets the remake treatment as well. Hopefully the film will be directed by Patrick Swayze himself. I would like to see his take on the classic film and really add the essence of Swayze to the magic of the movie. I would prefer if no Dirty Dancing remake was made; but if it happens, Swayze must be on board.

I am not sure how you guys feel about the fast tracked Footloose film, but if you were alone in your room wishing it to be soon….I’m glad I brought you the greatest of news.

    Zac Efron and everything from the disney channel should all rot in hell, they wanna ruin everything that’s good and pure in this cruel world. Nothing good ever comes out of the disney channel, Britney Spear for ex.
