Footloose, that is.

With "High School Musical 3" earning a toe-tapping $42 million its first weekend, Paramount Pictures is rushing to get star Zac Efron into a remake of the 1984 Kevin Bacon (and dance double) starrer "Footloose."

"Footloose" remains one of the biggest-selling soundtracks of all-time, boasting such tunes as "Let's Hear it for the Boy," "Holding Out for a Hero," and "Almost Paradise." The producers expect to use all of the classics in the film, along with new songs.
