‘Footloose” Re-Make Looses Steam
Imagine a ‘Footloose’ re-make starring Zac Efron, directed by ‘High School Musical” director Kenny Ortega. It sounds like pre-teen pop music heaven, and it would have been, if the planned duo had agreed to sign on. However, ‘Footloose’ is slowing losing its high profile momentum having signed newbie director Craig Brewer, who past credits include directing one episode of ‘The Sheild’ and ‘Hustle and Flow’ and unknown dancer/actor Kenny Wormald to take on the role Kevin Bacon made infamous. Paramount Pictures must be crossing its fingers with this new crew, hoping a little of the original movie magic will rub off this time around.
