Zac Won't Dance

High School Musical star Zac Efron has withdrawn from the upcoming remake of the 1984 movie musical Footloose.

Entertainment Weekly reports that Paramount issued this statement: "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."

Oh well. Could we really have trusted Zac Efron to step into the dancing shoes of Kevin Bacon?

Personally, I think execs should give Drew Seeley an audition. He provided the vocals for Troy Bolton in High School Musical (No, Zac did not sing in the first film) and filled in for Zac during the High School Musical concert tour.

Or, they should give a Broadway boy a shot!
