Jeffrey Hornaday To Direct High School Musical 4

Jeffrey Hornaday will helm High School Musical East Meets West, the fourth movie in the franchise (he’s replacing Kenny Ortega, who directed the first three).

Said Hornaday, “I’m excited to be part of a franchise that, thematically, encourages kids to believe in themselves. Like the first three movies, my goal is to keep the art form of the traditional musical alive, yet bring a contemporary emotional response to the story and its characters through song and dance.”

Hornaday choroeographed for Flashdance and A Chorus Line and directed Madonna and Backstreet Boys world concert tours.

In High School Musical 4, East meets West in a classic love triangle set against the cross-town school rivalry between the East High Wildcats and West High Knights.

HSM4 is going to suck. It has none of the original cast and won’t even have Kenny directing. I’m not going to see it.

# 8

# 9

I don’t know whether I will watch this or not, I will have to wait and see the trailer, it depends on what it looks like, but as if Kenny is not directing!!! maybe he said no because he was used to working with Zac, Vanessa, Ashley and co.

IS NOT FARE! WE WANT THE ORIGINAL DIRECTOR! AND THE ORIGINAL ACTORS! IS NOT GOOD TO CHANGE LIKE THAT THE MOVIIE AND THE HISTORY! ^^ I LOVE HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL BUT IF YOU CHANGE I`LL ONLY BE FAN OF THE 3 FIRST! I DONT WANT TO CHANGE! HAHA … BUU THATS AWFUL! u-u

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW

this is going to suck so bad.

they arent even keeping the 3 new castmates!!

seriously.. disney?!

are you people ok over there.

just stop.

3 is good enough.
if they make a 5th one that would be BEYOND gay.

they should of stopped @ 3! would of ended on top!
now all the main characters arent coming back…the cast knew when to stop

This.will.fail.

Ok 3 was enough.
We dont need anymore
We saw the story of Gabrielle & Troy.
Soon enough it’ll be like High school Musical 6!!!

Were sick of it!
NO MORE HSM’S.

What a waste of money.

OMG! they will just ruin the name of HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL!!!
i mean kenny ortega isn’t even directing it!!

this isn’t even high school musical anymore!!!
they’re going to ruin the reputation!!!!

ah hell nahh! 3 is ENOUGH!
if they still want to keep the whole HSM franchise…. jeeze make it a tvshow!

Seriously… did we need to plague the world with another one of these?
The Other ones sucked enough like it is we don’T need a fourth one -_-

ewwww, seriously, they ended HSM pretty good with the first one. this movie is just going to kill it -.-

@Haivy: i meant third one *

LOVE hsm 1 ,2 & 3

I’LL HATE hsm 4 if kenny and the original cast don’t appeared

HATE THE NEW HSM FRANCHISE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

LOVE THE ORIGINAL HSM 1,2 & 3

High school musical 1-3 were amazing and I really do hate the fact that its over but Senior Year was without a doubt the perfect ending to an amazing trilogy. The original actors made the movie like John Travolta made grease, and without the characters we’ve grown to cherish and love, it won’t be the same. I know the HSM franchise is a wonderful money making machine for disney but to go ahead with this next installment would be both a travesty and a disgrace to the entire franchise.

P.S.- in ten years, it’d be kick ass to have one of those class reunions like you have ten years after you graduate. Hell, that might even make an ok movie to see how things turned out for our favorite characters, just an idea is all…
