Opening in theaters on October 14th is the remake of the beloved '80s film Footloose, which helped turn Kevin Bacon into a household name. The new movie is directed by Craig Brewer (Hustle & Flow, Black Snake Moan) and stars newcomer Kenny Wormald in the role that made Bacon a star. The film also includes an impressive cast of veteran and young actors including Julianne Hough (Burlesque), Dennis Quaid (Frequency), Andie MacDowell (Groundhog Day), Miles Teller (Rabbit Hole), Ziah Colon (TV's Drop Dead Diva), and Ray McKinnon (The Blind Side).
IAR's managing editor Jami Philbrick recently had a chance to sit down with actors Miles Teller and Ziah Colon to discuss their roles in Footloose. In the new movie Teller and Colon play Willard and Rusty, the roles that were played by the late Chris Penn and Sarah Jessica Parker in the 1984 original. The two actors talked about the new film, the responsibility of remaking a classic, their pivotal roles, the music, the dancing, and working with director Craig Brewer.
