Hunk and talented actor in this generation Zac Efron isn't ready to put his dancing shoes back on just yet. The tween heartthrob has pulled out of 'Footloose,' a remake of the 80's classic about a newcomer who rails against anti-music laws and teaches a town to dance. The updated version will be helmed by Kenny Ortega, who directed Zac in all three "High School Musical" productions. Shooting was slated to begin this spring for a 2010 release, however, Zac's departure may not affect filming. "'Footloose' is a project we've longed to see re-booted for a new generation," a rep for Paramount Pictures tells ET. "While Zac is no longer attached, we remain excited and committed to the collective brain trust of Kenny Ortega, Neil Meron and Craig Zaden, who will reinvigorate the franchise. Their fresh take on the film will undoubtedly be filled with the same kind of breakout performances that we've come to expect from them."Good luck Zac.
