The new Footloose trailer is finally here, complete with plenty of fierce moves from former Dancing With the Stars darling Julianne Hough and hottie newcomer Kenny Wormald.

And while no one could ever replace Kevin Bacon...

Wormald has definitely caught our eye.

"We pretty much met and had to dance right away," Wormald, 27, says of working with Hough. "We're sweating and bumping into each other, so we became friends right away. No wall up. It was amazing."

Much like the '80s classic, in the new flick public dancing in the rural town of Bomont is outlawed after five high schoolers coming home from a dance are killed in a car crash. Wormald's character is the town's newcomer who leads the fight against the ban.

"I grew up dancing, so I was a big fan of Footloose," he said. "During the whole audition process I studied it a bit. Then once I booked it and read the new script I kind of stayed away from it a little bit because I knew it well, so I wanted to create my own Ren [MacCormack]."

Now we want to hear from you. Will you be in line to see the Footloose remake when it hits theaters? Sound off below.
