Photo Flash: FOOTLOOSE Movie Premieres in Los Angeles!

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. A Broadway musical version of Footloose was previously staged in 1998. The remake will be released in theatres on October 14.

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.
