Andie MacDowell Steps Into “Footloose”

Andie MacDowell has joined the cast of the upcoming remake “Footloose” for Paramount Pictures says Entertainment Weekly.

The story follows a rebellious outsider named Ren (Kenny Wormald) who moves to a new town where the local Reverend Shaw Moore (Dennis Quaid) despises the music the kids of his sleepy Southern town listen to and tries to ban rock and roll music.

Ren and his love interest (Julianne Hough) proceed to shake things up. MacDowell will play Vi Moore, the wife of the reverend. Kevin Bacon and Lori Singer starred in the 1984 original.

Craig Brewer (“Hustle and Flow”) directs from his script. Craig Zadan, Neil Meron, Brad Weston and Dylan Sellers will produce. Shooting on the project kicks off shortly.
