Here is the first trailer for Craig Brewer's (Hustle & Flow, Black Snake Moan) remake of Footloose, thanks to MTV. The film stars Kenny Wormald and Julianne Hough. Hopefully you have seen the original classic starring Kevin Bacon and already know the story.
The remake has the follows Ren McCormack (Wormald) after he moves from Boston to Bomont—"a small Southern town where boogieing has been banned after a post-dance car crash claimed the lives of five local teens. But as Britney Spears says, you gotta keep dancing till the world ends. So Ren, with the help of love interest Ariel (played by Julianne), decides to fight the rule—taking on Ariel's preacher father in the process."
I really think that this is an unnecessary remake, this film looks like Brewer's worst film to date. Check out the first trailer below and share your thoughts:
