Footloose: This Is What Happens When MTV Remakes A Classic
Here’s a trailer for Footloose – yes, that Footloose – which will ruin your childhood when it hits theatres in October. The remake, produced by MTV, stars newcomer Kenny Wormald as Ren, Dancing with the Stars‘ Julianne Hough as Ariel, and Dennis Quaid as Ariel’s dance-banning preacher father. There’s dancing! And driving! And fighting!
Honestly, though, if the trailer is indicative of the film itself, then – aside from some updated poppin’, lockin’ and droppin’ by white people, which should never happen, ever – perhaps devotees of Kevin Bacon and Lori Singer’s original won’t completely hate the new one. Oh, who am I kidding? Of course they will. [via MTV]
