I caught up with Julianne Hough and Kenny Wormald in San Francisco last week were we sat down and talked about their latest movie Footloose. Being a remake of the 1984 version starring Kevin Bacon I asked Kennny what pressures he was under following in the footsteps of one of Hollywood’s finest. I also talk with Julianne about her own personal move to London and how that mirrors the story of Ren in the movie as well ask talking about the pressures of recreating such a dance classic.

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.

Footloose is released in UK cinemas today!
