Thanks to MTV we may watch the first official movie trailer of Footloose, the upcoming remake directed by Craig Brewer and starring Kenny Wormald, Julianne Hough, Dennis Quaid, Andie MacDowell, and Miles Teller:
“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.”
Judging from this first Footloose trailer the film is going to be great. Fans may still be found of the original film, but I think this new take on Footloose is more likely to win over the new generations.
There’s also a first movie poster:
