First Trailer for the Footloose Remake
06.22.11 by Ryan
Yesterday, MTV released the poster for the upcoming Footloose remake and, as promised, the trailer has now arrived.
For fans of the 1984 original, it looks like the remake isn't veering too far from its predecessor. The movie still follows Ren McCormick (here Kenny Wormald instead of Kevin Bacon) who moves from a big city to the small town of Bomont, where Reverend Shaw Moore (Dennis Quaid replacing John Lithgow) has outlawed dancing. There's even a solo dancing sequence in an empty warehouse.
Perhaps the similarities are because Dean Pitchford, writer of the original Footloose, co-wrote the remake. Footloose also stars Julianne Hough and Andie MacDowell. Craig Brewer (Black Snake Moan, Hustle and Flow) directs.
