Unknown Cast In Footloose

| Filed under: Film Flickers


Pretty lucky break!

MTV Dancelife's Kenny Wormald has been cast as Ren in the upcoming remake of Footloose to star opposite Julianne Hough as Ariel.

Dennis Quaid will also appear in the film as Reverend Moore.

Writer/director Craig Brewer says:

"I can promise Footloose fans that I will be true to the spirit of the original film, but I still gotta put my own Southern grit into it and kick it into 2011. It's going to be a blast!"

The film is scheduled for release on April 1, 2011.

Will U be seeing it?

    Since Chace Crawford is not the lead male role from this re-make… I lost the interest completly… I might see it from Nextflix instead!

  2. 2

    He's not a complete unknown. He had the male lead in Center Stage 2.

  3. 3

    Julianne looks a little too old to play his counterpart doesn't she? I remember him from the Dancelife show and he's very baby-faced.

  4. 4

    Sigh….when will they ever get that you don't remake classics? They almost always fail!

    Kenny is a very talented dancer and not too shabby of an actor either.

  12. 12

    ummm Julianne Hough is hot, but isn't she like 30???

  13. 13

    Re: milat81 – I liked him on Dancelife. I think he's cute and an awesome dancer. But he's still got a baby face. Older or not…… he still LOOKS too young to be paired with Julianne.

  14. 14

    unknown. he was in centre stage 2 and has danced with everyone from Jlo to Madonna.

  15. 15

    I'm more likely to watch it now with KENNY in it than when Chace was the lead. Kenny is fantastic! I can't wait to see it!

  16. 16

    Julianne Hough is only 22 … Kenny is turning 26 in just over a month

  17. 17

  23. 23

    Not interesting in seeing a remake of Footloose and definitely not interested if Julianne Hough is in it! She is so annoying and fake.

  24. 24

    LOL when I first saw that picture I was like "Aaron Carter found the fountain of youth?!?"

  25. 25

    I would see anything with him in it :) He's such a great dancer and he seems to be a gentlemen.

    Great dancer.. and a good choice

  27. 27

    unknown. he was in center stage 2 and has danced with everyone from Jlo to Madonna.

  28. 28

    He looks like a more attractive, less douchey Spencer Pratt.

  29. 29

    OMG Kenny Wormald is an awesome dancer and choreographer. He will be brilliant in this role. And, he is a hottie. Can't wait to see it now.

  30. 30

    unknown to those who are blind when it comes to talent.
    this kid can dance! so happy to see him cast for this.
    make kevin bacon proud!

  31. 31

    He's cute, but it's hard to think of a less attractive name on a marquee than Kenny Wormaid. It sounds like Kool Aid made out of worms.

    Don't get me wrong—I'm glad he doesn't have a name like Jayden Ryan Tyler. But can't we find a happy medium?

  32. 32

    hes an amazing dancer!
