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, 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.
