Paramount Pictures has issued a statement that backs up yesterday’s rumors. “Zac Efron is no longer attached to the upcoming film.” says the statement. Zac has been part of the Footloose re-make plan since the summer of 2007.
Zac is trying hard to re-brand himself and get away from the good boy, singing and dancing roles that shot him to stardom. Just last week Interview magazine’s April cover was released and Zac is posing with a naked model-something Coach Bolton would disapprove of Troy doing, I am sure.
Not everyone is successful at re-branding themselves. It wil be interesting to see how Zac makes out on his quest.
