Though the remake of the classic 80's film will likely have some convincing to do before it's October release date, there's been some early buzz about Craig Brewer's updated Footloose actually being a fantastic and relevant take on the favorite dance romance of the past. Though I wasn't particularly impressed by the first trailer released in June, the second trailer released earlier this month was a vast improvement. Now we have four new posters that thankfully don't rely upon Photoshop chopping and call back to the classic titular song, which is featured in both the original film and this new remake, telling everyone to cut loose.
Here are the four new posters for Footloose courtesy of Collider (click for larger versions):
This new version of Footloose from Paramount and MTV Films is being directed by Craig Brewer, of Black Snake Moan and Hustle & Flow previously, from a screenplay that was co-written by lyricist/songwriter Dean Pitchford and Craig Brewer. In addition to Wormald starring as rebellious teen Ren MacCormack, the cast includes Julianne Hough as Ariel Moore, Dennis Quaid as Rev. Shaw Moore, Ray McKinnon, Ziah Colon, and Miles Teller as Willard. Paramount Pictures will be bringing this updated Footloose to theaters everywhere October 14th this fall.
