Craig Brewer is currently directing "Footloose" and he has shared a picture of the main cast from the set via his Twitter page. Kenny Wormald and Julianne Hough, who take the roles of Ren McCormack and Ariel Moore respectively, were snapped wearing their costumes probably for the filming of a big prom scene.
Kenny is cast for the part of Ren after Zac Efron and Chace Crawford backed out of the project. Beside Kenny and Julianne, the upcoming film will also feature Dennis Quaid and Andie McDowell as Ariel's parents, and Miles Teller as hometown boy Willard who befriends Ren.
Brewer's "Footloose" will serve as a remake to a 1984 film of the same title which had Kevin Bacon and Lori Singer on the leads. The story revolves around Ren who moves from Chicago to a small town, where his love for dancing is viewed as a threat by the locals.
Paramount Pictures plans to drop the drama musical in theaters across the nation on April 1, 2011.
