'Footloose' reboot back on, open casting call
Saturday 29 May 2010
It has been on and off again for the remake of 1984's
Footloose, with a change in directors and actors dropping out. But now it is officially a 'go' with an open casting call requesting audition tapes by June 9.
First, Kenny Ortega ( This Is It) was set to direct Zac Efron ( High School Musical) in the new version. Then it was Chace Crawford ( Gossip Girls) with director Craig Brewer ( Hustle & Flow).
The original film, starring Kevin Bacon, centered on a city boy who moves to a small town where rock music and dancing have been banned. According to Collider.com, Paramount Studios claims it will focus on the drama not the dance numbers.
The casting call "seeks males 18 or older to play high school seniors in Footloose, shooting summer 2010. Must have natural rhythm and be comfortable dancing. You do not have to be a trained dancer but a quick learner."
The setting: The South, Present Day
