Is 2011 the year of the 1980’s remake? There seem to be a lot of them .. or maybe I just keep hearing about them
In any case Footloose is making a comeback (trailer below)
This time round Craig Brewer directs. The story is pretty simple Ren MacCormack (played by newcomer Kenny Wormald) is transplanted from Boston to the small southern town of Bomont where he experiences a heavy dose of culture shock. A few years prior, the community was rocked by a tragic accident that killed five teenagers after a night out and Bomont’s local councilmen and the beloved Reverend Shaw Moore (Dennis Quaid) responded by implementing ordinances that prohibit loud music and dancing. Not one to bow to the status quo, Ren challenges the ban, revitalizing the town and falling in love with the minister’s troubled daughter Ariel (Julianne Hough) in the process.
The film has an October release date.
