Put on your dancing shoes - Footloose is back

Finally, after many years in "Development Hell", the remake of the 1984 classic, Footloose, is about to make its way onto the silver screen.

Click on any of the above to see a bigger version.

This also got me thinking ... What was the original Footloose trailer like? so with a couple of minutes on youTube I have the answer. There are a lot of simularities on both down to, more or less, exact recreation of some of the scenes: You will see what I mean if you watch the below, classic, version.
Writer/Director Craig Brewer (“Hustle & Flow,” “Black Snake Moan”) delivers a new take of the beloved 1984 classic film, “Footloose.” Ren MacCormack (played by newcomer Kenny Wormald) is transplanted from Boston to the small southern town of Bomont where he experiences a heavy dose of culture shock. A few years prior, the community was rocked by a tragic accident that killed five teenagers after a night out and Bomont’s local councilmen and the beloved Reverend Shaw Moore (Dennis Quaid) responded by implementing ordinances that prohibit loud music and dancing. Not one to bow to the status quo, Ren challenges the ban, revitalizing the town and falling in love with the minister’s troubled daughter Ariel (Julianne Hough) in the process.
