It started off as a 1984 musical film, then a stage adaptation in 1988.

Now, Paramount Pictures is doing a remake of one of North America’s most popular stories. Starring Kenny Wormald as Ren McCormick, Julianne Hough as Ariel, and Dennis Quaid as Rev. Shaw Moore.

Damn it looks pretty awesome. And damn Julianne Hough just stole my heart.

Footloose hits theatres October 14, 2011.
