If you were around to see the original “Footloose” in 1984, get ready for a serious flashback!
A trailer for the 2011 remake has surfaced, and it shows that the new version isn’t straying very far from its predecessor.
“Footloose” star Kenny Wormald sidled up to his computer, hit play on the trailer for his remake of the classic 1984 flick and quickly realized he’d made a big blunder.
“I watched it alone in my house, and that was a mistake, because I thought I was going to scream!” the dancer-turned-actor told MTV News. “I was blown away.”
In director Craig Brewer’s update, Ren MacCormack moves from Boston to Bomont, a small Southern town where a dance ban has been put into effect following a post-dance car crash.
With help from his love interest, the preacher’s daughter Ariel Moore (Julianne Hough), Ren decides to take the ban on. Dennis Quaid stars as Ariel’s father, Rev. Shaw Moore.
Although Zac Efron and Chace Crawford were attached to the part of McCormack, newcomer Kenny Wormald – born in the same year as “Footloose’s” release – is taking on the role, and he told Movieline that he’s indeed a fan of the original.
“I saw it when I was about ten years old,” said Kenny.
“I remember being blown away because I was already dancing by the age of six, so I was very inspired and moved by Kevin [Bacon’s] performance. Especially that angry dance, when he’s in the factory going crazy.”
