While Hayden Panettiere is as missing on promoting I Love You Beth Cooper as South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford, Vanessa Hudgens has been making hay promoting three of her upcoming movies – since April.
Panettiere recently completed filming Carmel, a Disney production due out “sometime” in 2010 (a bad sign). It was filmed, ironically, around Carmel and also stars Clint Eastwood’s wife, Dina.
Panettiere lost the role in Footloose to Julianne Hough, who stars opposite Zac Efron clone Chance Crawford (oh, come on – they look identical – Vanessa can’t even tell them apart – lucky for Chance).
Hudgens and Alyson Michalka see Bandslam opening Aug. 14 against A Perfect Getaway, District 9, The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard, It Might Get Loud, Ponyo (a Disney film), The Post Grad Survival Guide, Taking Woodstock and The Time Traveler’s Wife.
Beastly, which stars Hudgens, one of the Olsen twins and Doogie Howser, wraps filming in Canada right about the time Bandslam opens. Beastly is schedule for a July 30, 2010 release.
You can bet Hudgens will be out there like her boy toy did, promoting the heck out of Bandslam. Then it’s off to “various locations” to film Sucker Punch, which TeamHudgens.org claims is filming September through the end of January. Scheduled for March 25, 2011 opening.
