Zac Efron Out of FOOTLOOSE & Amanda Seyfried Out of SUCKER PUNCH
Amongst all the casting news, there had to be some “uncasting” news to come along eventually. And so according to HitFix (via FirstShowing.net), Zac Efron has dropped out of FOOTLOOSE (the remake) apparently Zac Efron decided that he did not want to make another musical right now, and it also seems that he was “incredibly disappointed in the script the studio was trying to fast track into production.” I honestly can’t say that I am surprised, but now I’m curious who the studio will find to replace him.
As for Amanda Seyfried, she has dropped out of Zac Snyder’s SUCKER PUNCH (the casting of which we announced earlier this month). According to EW Amanda Seyfried had to drop out because of scheduling conflict with HBO’s Big Love, in which she stars. So far no word on who will be replacing her.
What do you guys think? Are you disappointed by either of these news or do you just not care at this point?
