After witnessing Hurricane Efron firsthand this weekend, Paramount is very keen to fast-track their Footloose remake with hopes of next spring in mind.
Peter Sollett, director of the very enjoyable Nick and Norahs Infinite Playlist, has been picked up to work on the re-write of the script which will aim for an older teen and adult demo. Efron is just about set in a deal that will pay him a mid-seven-figure salary and give him script approval to kick off his Sunday shoes. And with abs like that, why shouldn't he have all that and more? While Sollett rewrites the script, the studio is working on new songs that will complement some of the memorable original tunes.
