Let's hear it for the boys behind Chicago! Craig Zadan and Neil Meron who exec produced the Oscar-winning movie musical have inked a deal with Paramount to remake Footloose into a full-scale musical, Variety reports. "This... is going to be closer in tone to Moulin Rouge than Chicago," says Zadan, who served as a producer on the original 1984 pic. Thankfully, the new film is not related to the recent stage adaptation of Footloose which was truly awful.
