Paramount Pictures, Lionsgate
May 12, 2009
Paramount Pictures is eyeing a June 18, 2010 release for the Kenny Ortega-directed Footloose remake, to which Zac Efron was attached before dropping out a couple of months ago. No new lead actor has been announced yet. The new version will feature new songs that will complement some of the memorable original tunes from the film that made Kevin Bacon a star.
Meanwhile, Lionsgate has set a December 4, 2009 release date for the Jim Sheridan-directed Brothers, starring Tobey Maguire, Jake Gyllenhaal and Natalie Portman. You can view more info on the film here.
