We loved Kevin Bacon as Ren in the original "Footloose." And the actor has been quiet regarding the new remake...until now...
I enjoyed "Footloose" the remake, you enjoyed it too, and apparently, Bacon thinks the new film "rocked it!"
Bacon tweeted, "F-Loose! Just saw it. Congrats to Craig, Kenny, Julianne, Dennis,Andie, Miles, and the rest of the cast. U guys rocked it!"
It's kind of cool that Bacon paid for his own ticket to see the film (he tweeted the picture of his ticket stub, check it out here). But why did he not attend the premiere instead? He was probably waiting until the hype surrounding the Craig Brewer remake subsided before cutting loose, HA!
But thanks Mister Kevin, we still love you as Ren, but we enjoyed Kenny Wormald's moves as well!

Eric Bana will channel Elvis Presley in the new independent film "Elvis & Nixon." Danny Huston will star as Richard Nixon in the directorial debut of Cary Elwes ("The Princess Bride"). Bana will also be the executive producer through his Pick Up Truck Pictures banner.
Elwes also co-wrote the script with Joey Sagal and Hanala Sagal. The film will focus on the event of Dec. 21, 1970 when Presly traveled to Washington D.C. to meet President Nixon at the White House.
According to Variety, "Elwes was so fascinated by how the improbable meeting between the two historical figures came to pass that he chose the unlikely summit as the subject of his first film as a writer-director."
Thank you, thank you very much...

It took fourteen years, but the Academy Award-winning team of Ben Affleck and Matt Damon will be working together again since their triumphant "Good Will Hunting."
According to GQ, Affleck and Damon will work together on a biopic of mobster Whitey Bulger, the Winter Hill gang leader who was arrested this past June. Damon will star as the mobster and Affleck will direct.
These Boston boys are surely busy. Affleck is about to wrap up his CIA thriller "Argo," and is rumored to be the one, the only one handpicked by Warner Bros. to direct the big screen adaptation of Stephen King's "The Stand."
Damon will shoot the Liberace film from HBO next summer, and is getting ready to direct his first feature which he will co-write and co-star with John Krasinski.

I adore Joss Whedon! He created one of the best TV shows ever with "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," and his take on "The Avengers" looks very promising.
But this morning, to my surprise, there may be a new Whedon offering in the horizon by way of William Shakespeare!
Nathan Fillion, Whedon's partner-in-crime in the sci-fi series "Firefly" tweeted last night with a cryptic note, more like a link to muchadothemovie.com.
And when you go to the website, you see a black and white picture of a snorkeling guy, martini in hand, and the words "A Film by Joss Whedon" in the bottom.
According to The Wrap by way of The Huffington Post, the film is indeed made, and Whedon has adapted, written, and directed the movie.
Hhmmm, an intriguing news for Whedon fans everywhere!
Here's the press release for muchadothemovie.com from Bellwether Pictures:
Santa Monica, CA (October 24th, 2011)
Bellwether Pictures proudly announces the completion of principal photography on MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING, a modern version of Shakespeare’s classic comedy adapted and directed by Joss Whedon (Marvel’s upcoming THE AVENGERS, “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog”). Filmed in just 12 days entirely on location in exotic Santa
Monica, the film features a stellar cast of beloved (or soon to be beloved) actors – some of them veterans of Shakespearean theater, some completely new to the form. But all dedicated to the idea that this story bears retelling, that this dialogue is as fresh and
intoxicating as any being written, and that the joy of working on a passion project surrounded by dear friends, admired colleagues and an atmosphere of unabashed rapture far outweighs their hilariously miniature paychecks.
MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING is the first feature from Bellwether, a micro-studio created by Joss Whedon and Kai Cole for the production of small, independent narratives for all media, embracing a DIY ethos and newer technologies for, in this particular case, a
somewhat older story.
Shot in glorious black and white by Jay Hunter (PAPER HEART, “Dollhouse”), the film stars Amy Acker (CABIN IN THE WOODS, “Alias”) and Alexis Denisof (“How I Met Your Mother”, “Angel”) as Beatrice and Benedick, the world’s least likely lovers headed for their inevitable tumble into love. As Joss Whedon puts it: “The text is to me a deconstruction of the idea of love, which is ironic, since the entire production is a love letter – to the text, to the cast, even to the house it’s shot in.” The supporting cast includes Nathan Fillion (“Castle”, WAITRESS) as Dogberry, Clark Gregg (AVENGERS,
IRON MAN) as Leonato, Fran Kranz (CABIN IN THE WOODS, “Dollhouse”) as
Claudio and Reed Diamond (“Franklin & Bash”, MONEYBALL) as Don Pedro.
The film was produced by Whedon, line-produced by Nathan Kelly and M. Elizabeth Hughes, and co-produced by Kai Cole and Danny Kaminsky. The super-impressive cast is listed below. Full tech credits (for the extraordinary crew) will be up shortly. The film
should be completed by early spring and headed for the festival circuit, because it is fancy.
