Dennis Quaid has signed up to star in the new Footloose remake, as the reverend played by John Lithgow in the original movie.
Former dancer Kenny Wormald was confirmed as the new lead earlier this week, replacing Chace Crawford, and Julianne Hough will play his love interest, Ariel, who happens to be the daughter of Quaid’s religious character.

The original 1984 film starred Kevin Bacon, Lori Singer and Chris Penn.
