Melbourne, Nov 27 : 'High School Musical 3' heartthrob Zac Efron's next project may be the remake of 1984 film 'Footloose', which will be directed by Kenny Ortega.
The actor is said to be looking for a mid-seven-figure salary and script approval before signing a contract with the filmmakers.
"There's a lot of wrong ways to do this movie," the Daily Telegraph quoted Efron as telling Variety magazine.
"It's a matter of finding the right balance. Until we find it, I can't fully ..." he paused trying to find a word.
"... I can't finish that sentence," he said abruptly.
As the conversation moved on to the next topic, he finally finds the word.
"Commit. Until I fully commit," he stated.
Even though Efron at times may say what he wants, he somehow seems to catch himself and revert back to his script. But Ortega is confident that the actor will do very well with the new role.
"Its like life imitating the movies - suddenly (the cast) has come of age as young people. The light of the future is shining brightly into their eyes, begging them to make decisions that will impact on the rest of their lives," Ortega said.
"I see the characters and the actors as having arrived in the same place at the same time.
"But I have great confidence in them, their families and the teams they have around them, that they're going to make good choices. They are all wise beyond their years. They have a sense of humour. They're sensible, humbled by the attention. They're going to do good," he added.
