Exclusive : Lori Singer returning for Footloose remake!?


I had the chance to chat to the original ‘wild girl’ Lori Singer this weekend about all things “Footloose” (for my Caffeinated Clint’s Greats Series) and the actress let slip that she might be participating in the remake.

Singer, who played ‘Ariel’ in the Herbet Ross-directed original, tells Moviehole she may make an appearance in the upcoming remake (Which Craig Zadan, producer of the original, is also shepherding).

”I heard they are going to ask me to take part”, Singer said, adding “I would be honoured to do so.”

(Singer’s co-star Kevin Bacon also hasn’t ruled out making a cameo in the remake.)

“Footloose”, which will be directed by Craig Brewer (“Hustle & Flow”), is said to be zeroing in on Thomas Dekker (“Terminator : The Sarah Connor Chronicles”) to play the lead. No word yet on who’ll be ‘dancing in the sheets’ in the role of Ariel.
