Watch: First Official Trailer for Craig Brewer's New 'Footloose' Remake
Welcome back to Bomont. MTV and Paramount have finally debuted the official trailer for Craig Brewer's remake of the classic musical Footloose, this time updated to be contemporary and for the MTV generation. As you might've expected, it's basically Step Up (or any of those dance movies), but as Footloose instead. Newcomer Kenny Wormald stars as Ren MacCormack and the cast also includes Dennis Quaid and Julianne Hough. It may not be what you expect (or maybe it is), but fire it up anyway. At least there's a bit of great-looking filmmaking in here. There's lots of public dancing, so watch out and try to have fun!
Watch the first official trailer for Craig Brewer's Footloose via MTV:
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 Kenny Wormald starring as the 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 is bringing this updated Footloose to theaters everywhere October 14th this fall. I'm curious to hear what everyone thinks of this?
