Lose your blues, everybody cut footloose! Are you ready to return to Bomont, circa 2011? MTV has debuted the first look at a poster and a set of photos for Paramount's upcoming musical remake of Footloose. Although names like Zac Efron and Chace Crawford were thrown around, newcomer Kenny Wormald stars as Ren MacCormack this time, and can be seen lounging on his vintage yellow VW beetle on the first official poster. I've tossed up a few of the photos, just for atmosphere, because if you really want to go all MTV and ogle the rest of the cast, you can head to MTV and do just that, plus a trailer is hitting late tonight.
This new version of Footloose from Paramount Pictures is being directed by Craig Brewer, of Black Snake Moan and Hustle & Flow previously. Just wait ’till you see the trailer and find out what he's done to update this classic musical. In addition to Kenny Wormald starring as the rebellious teen Ren MacCormack, the cast includes Julianne Hough as Ariel Moore, Dennis Quaid, Ray McKinnon, Ziah Colon, and Miles Teller as Willard. I'm intrigued to see how Brewer has made this his own and how they've changed it, but other than that, it's just another musical. Footloose is scheduled for release on October 14th. Excited yet?
Why? Why!? WHY!? "This is our time!" Only a Goonie can say that dammit!

come on, they're doing "Footloose" and still no word yet on the "Last Dragon" remake? Damn. and on another note, this is a very interesting choice for Brewer. From hustle and flow and black snake moan to this? hmmmm......
