Paramount has released a new trailer for the remake of the 1984 Kevin Bacon movie Footloose. Kenny Wormald stars as a city kid who moves to conservative Midwestern town: “Once there, he ends up leading the repressed teenagers into a rebellion against the town fathers, who have outlawed rock & roll and dancing.” Julianne Hough, Dennis Quaid, Ray McKinnon, and Andie MacDowell also star. Craig Brewer (Black Snake Moan) directed the remake.
I got to see the film a few weeks ago and as I said in the intro to my recent interview with Brewer, “I’m going to tell you something you might not believe, but I swear it’s the truth: the remake of Footloose is actually pretty great. Brewer has taken the original story, made a few changes, added his unique style, and the end result is something that audiences are going to love.” Watch the new trailer after the jump. Footloose opens October 14.
