High School Musical, Rent, Hairspray, Hannah Montana, Camp Rock, Fame, Glee…the list goes on and on.

Musical's are dominating the entertainment industry. You can't get away from musical's nowadays even if you wanted to, but we can't get enough!

Announcement of a Footloose remake got us all excited in 2009, especially when HSM and Hairspray hunk, Zac Efron, was announced as the lead, but the excitement didn't last long. Zac Efron dropped out of the film apparently due to a fear of being type-casted for the rest of his career, leaving us Ren McCormack-less…until now!

Paramount Pictures announced Tuesday that Kenny Wormald, a newcomer to the film world, will be taking on the lead in the remake of the 1984 movie which starred Kevin Bacon. Wormald will star alonside Dancing with the Stars champ and country singer, Jullianne Hough and Dennis Quaid. The film will be directed by Craig Brewer and is expected for an April 1, 2011 release.

Will you be in theaters next April to catch Footloose?
