Director Craig Brewer (Hustle & Flow) will reportedly helm Footloose for Paramount.


The remake has suffered its share of setbacks. Director Kenny Ortega (High School Musical 3: Senior Year) left the project, and both Zac Efron and Chace Crawford (Gossip Girl) decided not to take on the lead role.

The original 1984 film starred Kevin Bacon, and it grossed a whopping $80 million domestically. That equates to around $178.5 million when adjusting for inflation.
