Some New Images from the Footloose Remake

1 Comment

Who doesn’t have fond memories of 1984′s “Footloose” starring Kevin Bacon? If just for the really, really awful fidgeting that passed for “dancing” in that movie? Though I gotta admit, Kevin Bacon throwing himself around a deserted factory was kinda awesome. And then there’s Chris Penn’s cowboy hick learning to dance. That’s beyond words awesome, too.

As far as I know, the remake by Craig Brewer follows the original pretty closely, with a city kid name Ren McCormack (Kenny Wormald) moving to a small town where rock ‘n’ roll and dancing have been banned. “Dancing with the Stars’” Julianne Hough plays Ariel Moore, the local girl who tempts our transplanted city boy. Dennis Quaid plays her fire and brimstone dad.

Co-starring Ziah Colon, Ray McKinnon, Miles Teller, Ser’Darius William Blain, Patrick John Flueger, and Andie MacDowell.

    I know we live in 2011 and all… but wasn’t the whole premise of the original film that dancing and rock ‘n roll lead to all manner of sexual sins? From some of the pictures, and the way them lassies are dressing, I’d say rock ‘n roll and dancing clearly aren’t the only contributors!
