High School Musical star Zac Efron has decided that he won’t be doing another musical, at least for now. He has withdrawn from playing the lead role in the remake of the 80′s Kevin Bacon film-Footloose. Little Zac is trying to evolve into more adult roles.
Paramount Pictures would not confirm the reason why Zac has withdrawn from the film.
Footloose is a project we’ve longed to see re-booted for a new generation. While Zac is no longer attached, we remain excited and committed to the collective brain trust of Kenny Ortega, Neil Meron and Craig Zaden, who will reinvigorate the franchise. Their fresh take on the film will undoubtedly be filled with the same kind of breakout performances that we’ve come to expect from them.”
Zac is currently promoting his new film 17 Again in Paris.
