There comes a time to cut loose.
Footloose is a 2011 American dance film directed by Craig Brewer. It is remake of the 1984 film of the same name and stars Kenny Wormald, Julianne Hough, Dennis Quaid, and Andie MacDowell. Filming started in September 2010 in Georgia and ended in November 2010 for a scheduled released date of October 14, 2011 in theaters. The original movie soundtrack is coming September 27, 2011.
Unlike the original set in the fictional town of “Bomont, Utah” the adaption is set in fictional “Bomont, Tennessee”. It was filmed in Georgia with a budget of $25 million. Principal photography began in September 2010 in and around metro Atlanta, and wrapped two months later in November. A courtroom scene was shot at the Newton County Historic Courthouse in Covington on September 17, 20 and 21.
A family scene was filmed at the New Senoia Raceway in Senoia on October 1. A scene taken from the original film, in which McCormack plays a game of “chicken” with his love interest’s boyfriend, was filmed on the Chattahoochee River bridge on Franklin Parkway in downtown Franklin also in October. The home and church seen in the film were filmed in downtown Acworth. Production used the sanctuary of Acworth Presbyterian and the house of the Mayor.
