The movie will star Kenny Wormald as Ren McCormack, Julianne Hough as Ariel Moore and Dennis Quaid as Rev. Shaw Moore with direction by Craig Brewer. Though the first movie, starring Kevin Bacon, was adapted for the stage in 1998 and made into a musical, the 2011 film stays true to the original and is not a movie-musical. However, songs such as "Holding Out for a Hero," "Let's Hear it for the Boy" and "Almost Paradise," provide background music throughout the film.
"Footloose" tells the story of Ren McCormack, who leaves the city life of Chicago behind and is relocated to a small southern town where dancing is against the law. However, the rebellious teen is determined to fight for what he believes in, bring dancing back, and win over the Reverend's daughter, Ariel.
