LOFL - Saturday Night Fever remake?

The Sun (ever reliable) says Simon Cowell wants Zac Efron for Saturday Night Fever remake.

LOLx1000000000000000 (aka NO THANKS).

Cowell to remake Saturday Night Fever

SIMON COWELL is on the verge of nailing a deal for the big-screen remake of classic movie Saturday Night Fever.

I've had a sneaking suspicion the Britain's Got Talent supremo has always fancied himself as the film's star JOHN TRAVOLTA since I uncovered the snaps of him as a 19-year-old on holiday.

I'm pretty sure he has spent a good few hours over the years prancing around his bedroom pretending to be disco king Tony Manero.

The millionaire music boss knows a great investment when he sees one. And by the sound of his plans for the remake he's landed yet another licence to print money.

He has been in negotiations for weeks with legendary film producer ROBERT STIGWOOD, who owns the rights to the screenplay.

The idea for the original 1977 blockbuster came after Robert saw an article in a US mag about teenagers going to dancing competitions.

And Simon has drawn up a wishlist of top talent to prove to Robert that his version will be a match for the classic.

I've been given a nod that High School Musical star ZAC EFRON is in line for the lead role.

And hip-hop uber producer TIMBALAND is in the frame to rework one of the most famous movie soundtracks of all time - an album that topped the US charts for a massive 24 weeks.

I'm telling you the boy gets attached to every effing musical no matter how ridiculous.
