In an interview with MSNBC, Zac Efron addressed the rumors of a fourth Pirates of the Caribbean movie and a sequel to Hairspray.
“I wish I could confirm it was anything but a rumor, but I haven’t heard it,” Efron said.Also, in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Zac stated why he didn't take the lead role in Footloose, and it's not because he's done with musicals.
“I wish (it) would happen!” Efron said of possible fourth “Pirates of the Caribbean,” which Johnny Depp is reportedly in talks to star in. “If you guys want to make it happen, I’m here!”
As for a sequel to “Hairspray,” Efron said he’s game for that as well.
“At this point, they haven’t really talked to us yet, but I know that it’s an idea that they’re developing,” Efron revealed. “And, it sounds like fun… it sounds like a good idea.”
I'm sure Footloose would have been a huge challenge," Efron said, "but the actors that I love and the actors that work really hard in this industry are always shaking things up, trying new genres, acquiring new skill sets. That's what's always going to appeal to me: the unknown."Source
