Everybody crunk 'Footloose?'

Posted By on Wed, Jun 22, 2011 at 6:12 PM

Atlanta stands in for "Bomont, Tenn.," in the Southern-inflected remake of Footloose. Kenny Wormold steps into Kevin Bacon's dancing shoes as a teenager who rebels against a small town's ban on dancing. Wikipedia points out some of the Georgia shooting locations:

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.

Opening Oct. 14, Footloose features Dennis Quaid and Georgia-born character actor Ray McKinnon
