    CASTING NOTES: FOOTLOOSE



    More and more 80's nostalgias are relived!! The latest, 1984 film in which Kevin Bacon stars as a hip hop teen from Chicago who butts heads with the local boys in his new home in the old-fashioned West; Footloose will get a treatment akin to The Karate Kids or Red Dawn. Footloose remake will be directed and written by Craig Brewer who made an impact with Hustle & Flow few years back.


    Paramount Pictures has announced the casting for the remake of movie which centred arounf the conflicts within the community whom despise dancing and rock music. The new faces are Kenny Wormald, Miles Teller, Dennis Quaid and Julianne Hough.


    Kenny Wormald will steps into the shoe of Bacon and he is the familiar face behind MTV's Dancelife. Ok, that should suits him well with all these dancing and footloose! Julianne Hough on the other hand will take on the role of the love interest and daughter of the small town's conservative preacher (Dennis Quaid). Miles Teller will play a knuckle-headed local that befriends Wormald’s city boy.


    Brewer will take the screenplay into his own creation that will loosely adapts the original Dean Pitchford's work in the 80s. Another remake of the 80's is on the way and we expect the remake to make it into the theaters in the US next year.
