Zac Efron To Remake Elvis Presley Film Blue Hawaii?


Zac Efron makes girls squeal and scream just as much as the king, Elvis Presley once did. But is the budding nineteen year old star really ready to take on an Elvis role? Mike Walker of the National Enquirer is reporting that for his first solo breakout movie, the teen idol is set to slip into Elvis Presley's flip-flops for a big-big-budget remake of the King's smash 1961 classic, Blue Hawaii!

The Enquirer's veteran gossip reports that the major studio deal's hush-hush until the ink's dried, but an insider told me: "It's a perfect vehicle for Zac! Not only can he sing and dance, but he's a truly great surfer and wants to perform his own surfing scenes."


Walker muses, "Brace yourselves for The Zac-Attack, ladies ? he's also slated for "High School Musical: The Movie," if Disney coughs up the right dough." Will he really make the Elvis film? It certainly seems like a decent fit.

But first he'll set his sights a little lower with a six degrees of separation. "We're working on developing a remake of Footloose, with me in the Kevin Bacon role, and an age-swap film like Big, Zac dished. "There?s other stuff but I don?t want to talk about it and then let people down."

Argh...I LOVE HIM !!! Zac Efron is soooo stunning and talented (obv. No as Good as Elvis). He doesn't look like Elvis but he has the talent to be him..

I love him in Hairspray...:D:D:D:D:D:D

Sheesh doesn't anyone in "Hollywood" have any new ideals anymore? Seems like every time I hear of a new movie its a remake.

Can they really not come up with any new ideas?:blink: I don't like this idea at all :doh:

Elvis' movies are his. If this is another attempt to wake young peoples interests to Elvis, then it's the wrong way to do it. I'm 14, and I know that many of the young people out there will love the movie and love Zac. They won't care that Elvis starred in the original 40+ years ago.

So I don't see no reason to do this. Make a High School Musical 3 or something. Just do not remake any of Elvis' movies!

Can't they just leave Elvis movies alone. Let us just remember Elvis in these and not have to watch someone else try to step into his shoes because believe me that will never happen.

No-one will ever be able to step into his shoes.

aaaaargh! lol
I like this guy ! lol :blush:
But...remake of Blue Hawaii.....naaaaah....no way. I really hope it won't happen.
Because (don't kill me lol) he will be COMPARED to Elvis, which is so not possible...The young population will think that that guy made a better movie then Elvis, just because it looks newer and that the Original Blue Hawaii is old fashioned. :'(

I'm afraid young Zac is a pretty boy flash-in-the-pan whose career will end up the same way as Scott Baio, Christopher Atkins etc etc.

i.e. nowhere! ;)

And The National Enquirer as a source? Puh-lease!

Oh Yes, he is a great person, so down-to-earth. Once he was This Morning, a programme we have over here, and he is a lovely person, not a typical celeb.

Marija...we have similar tastes..!! (y)

I think they shouldn't do this.
Maybe it's fun to see how this story will be in 2007,but I think you should leave this film just the way it was.

This is a great oppertunity to let young people meet Elvis. Because they want to see the original, simply as that

If they do remake this, well I certainly hope it's better than that STUPID beach movie with Kelly Clarkson & Gaurini. UGGGHHH! Blue Hawaii is one of my all-time favorite Elvis movies - I don't know if I'll be able to watch it & enjoy it with anyone else.

LOOOL, thank you marija - being in my late 40s, i probably could be your mom.

'high school musical'? never heard as well :lmfao:

apart from elvis - who will always be my #1* - i do like other 60s, 70s music, dated from my younger years. plus 40's bigbands and 50s, also SOME of the 80s and SOME of the 90s and VERY few contemporary stuff. guess that's a sign of growing old if one has not even heard the names of today's idols.

* he was already my alltime #1 in the 70s when it was regarded VVVEEERRRYYY 'uncool' by my schoolmates to be an elvis fan. believe me, i had to stand plenty of mocking :king:.

hugs, ellie

LOL be prepared for the worst! on the other hand .... maybe in the meantime it is 'cool' again to be elvisfan? when i first realized there is a number of 'young' fans in forums and groups, it was a nice surprise.

so, IF this young man shall play the male lead in a remake - hope he enjoys it. very unlikely though that i shall by myself a ticket at the boxoffice. :D

Zac is a very nice young man. He knows much about Elvis and has respect for the 'Old' music. He made High School Musical because he likes Grease. And those movies have some things in common. It's always nice to talk to Zac and I think he will do a very good job! He will never compare himself to Elvis, and know that no one could be so big as him.
