Hairspray heart-throb Zac Efron is set to step into Kevin Bacon's dancing shoes for a remake of eighties classic FOOTLOOSE. Efron is reuniting with High School Musical director Kenny Ortega to play streetwise teen Ren MCCormack, Moviehole.net reports. The remake is likely to be expanded from a dance movie to a full blown musical. While Bacon was in his mid-20s playing MCCormack, at 19 Efron is the perfect age.
