Kenny Wormald and Miles Teller in Footloose (2011) Movie Image

Check out your first clip from the “Footloose” remake. I have no idea if writer Dean Pitchford and director Craig Brewer were going for comedy gold here or what, but a couple of lines in this little clip where new kid in town Ren (Kenny Wormald) learns that there is no dancing allowed in town for anyone under 18 is a hoot and a half.

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.

Also starring Kenny Wormald, Julianne Hough, Dennis Quaid, Ziah Colon, Ray McKinnon, Miles Teller, Ser’Darius William Blain, Patrick John Flueger, and Andie MacDowell.

The kids unleash the poop chute October 14, 2011.

    This is movie is dead in the water or I’m completely out of touch witih Pop culture. If it opens to more than 4 million, I will just have to break out my Howard Jones and disappear.

      Oh, I can almost GUARANTEE you it’ll do more than that. I would be shock if it didn’t open #1, even against “The Thing” prequel, which is it’s only competition that week.

        don’t make me eat my words. Maybe something from the week before will hold #1.

          Nope, I don’t see anything holding over. “Real Steel” is the only big film in the previous week, and it has ZERO buzz.

    I have to agree with Nix – I’m betting this actually does pretty well… which will unfortunately make Hollywood remake even more stuff!

    Granted, I’m interested to see how this looks and feels because it seems to be an interesting hybrid of “reimagined” and “direct copy,” – a “reimagined copy” if you will.

    I’ll admit I’m curious about this – the end dance scene from the original ranks up there among my favourite scenes in any movie ever – hopefully it lives up to the memory.

      On the plus side, it doesn’t look THAT bad, and like you, I love the original. It has a big spot in my big vault of guilty pleasures. I mean, they even replicated the dancing by himself in a warehouse scene. How’s that for staying true?

        See it Nix. We just might surprise you. I loved the original, that’s why I wanted to make it and protect it from anyone else that might mess it up. Let me know what you think.
