Zac Efron is the new movie musical king!
TVGuide.com is reporting that Efron will star in a remake of the 80's classic Footloose, playing the part Kevin Bacon played in the original movie. High School Musical director Kenny Ortega is in talks to choreograph and direct the film.
Frankly, this sounds like perfect casting to me. Efron was effortlessly charming in High School Musical, and he looks totally swoon-worthy in the soon-to-be-released film of the musical Hairspray, so I have no doubt he'll be fantastic as the rebel who brings dancing to a small town. Not to mention it will give him a chance to swivel those fine-looking hips of his!
And for those who are concerned, don't be -- Mr. Efron is 19 years old, totally of age. So lust away!
