Pretty boy Zac Efron has dropped out of a remake of the 1984 movie Footloose. Zac, 21, was set to play the role first made famous by Kevin Bacon. But the movie is still in production without him. No replacement has been named.
Efron has said that he is tired of teen roles and musicals and wants to make the transition to serious acting. His next theatrical release will be 17 Again, which will be released on April 17 in the U.S.
Meanwhile, rumors have surfaced that Efron, who is dating his former High School Musical co-star Vanessa Hudgens, 20, has asked her to marry him. The two met on the High School Musical set three years ago, where they played couple Troy and Gabriella.
The two are reportedly looking for a warm, tropical location for the wedding, and are considering Hawaii for the ceremony planned for September.
