The lead role in the upcoming Footloose reboot has been cast and announced. Is it Zac Efron? The Beiber? George Clooney? No, dear Remake Whores, it is newcomer Kenny Wormald. Kenny is a professional dancer who has toured with Justin Timberlake and starred in MTV’s Dancelife. Kenny will be joining the previously announced Dancing With The Stars dancer Julianne Hough in the film, which begins filming later this summer. Craig Brewer, of Hustle & Flow fame, will direct. Look for Footloose in theaters April 1 2011.
This is an interesting bit of casting news and has upped the film on my radar a bit! Are YOUR dreams crushed that Zac Efron will not be kicking off his Sunday shoes?
