CATEGORIES Movie NewsYou already know studios are pumping remakes out by the dozen, but this piece of reboot information certainly seems like a first. According to Moviehole, 'Footloose' star Kenny Wormald (who plays the role made famous by Kevin Bacon in the reboot) may be your new Johnny Castle (Patrick Swayze's part) in the upcoming 'Dirty Dancing' remake.
As noted by CinemaBlend, it seems a bit redundant having an up-and-coming actor starring in not one, but two '80s remakes. Especially ones focusing on dance. (Wormald was famously a back-up dancer for Justin Timberlake.)
If this actually happens though, perhaps Wormald can put out feelers for the probably-eventually-coming remakes of 'Breakfast Club' and 'Princess Bride.' Also, the eventual remake of the 'Footloose' remake.
