Zac Efron bowed out of the Paramount remake of "Footloose" because he says he's on a path of acting legitimacy and doesn't want to be associated with another song and dance film.
Everyone behind the production were all shocked, since they've been working on it since last July!
Apparently, Efron used the latest script revision as his parachute to say, adios! He probably didn't like the new script? Or he just used it as an out!
The Wrap is reporting:
The teen-throb star of Disney’s first three “High School Musical” films, has pulled out of Paramount’s planned remake of “Footloose,” in an apparent effort to stretch his career beyond fame as just a cute song-and-dance man.
Efron told the studio last week that he did not want to do another musical at this point in his career, according to a senior member of the production team.
