For a while there, it looked like Zac Efron would be putting his dancing shoes (back) on for the role, but now it’s official. Crawford is in. They actually kind of look a little bit alike, don’t they? I’m sure Crawford will do a fine job.
Hayden Panettiere is rumored to star in the movie, as well. Kenny Ortega, who helmed the “High School Musical” movies, will direct and produce “Footloose,” scheduled for a 2010 release.
Think Crawford will do a good job? I’ve never actually seen him dance, but he must have some pretty awesome skills to be cast in “Footloose.” Anyone know if he’s a hoofer?
