Photo Flash: FOOTLOOSE Movie Poster Revealed!
As previously reported, the Footloose remake, starring Julianne Hough and Kenny Wormald will be released in theaters on October 14, 2011. Last month, BroadwayWorld brought you a sneak peek of the first production stills, and today we bring you a look at the official movie poster, as first exclusively unveiled on MTV.com.
The new film Footloose will be expanded into a "full-blown movie musical" from the earlier film with songs. In addition to starring a young Kevin Bacon as Ren, Footloose also starred Lori Singer as Ariel. It was originally written by Dean Pitchford and directed by Herbert Ross. A Broadway musical version of Footloose was previously staged in 1998.
The film is being produced by Craig Zadan (a producer of the original "Footloose" in 1984) and Neil Meron. Zadan and Meron together produced the revivals of Promises, Promises and the current How To Succeed in Business Without Really Trying on Broadway.
