It’s hard to pinpoint when exactly this '80s nostalgia virus seemed to grip the globe in such a breathless ecstasy-hold. Hollywood has already come for "beloved" films from that decade, either in the form of aerobicized remakes starring Kelsey Grammer (“Fame”) or laughable sequels (“Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights”) and no-one spoke out, so we only have ourselves to blame for this long-threatened “Footloose” remake, which is finally coming to fruition. Discerning “Archer” fans will excuse this writer as he invokes another Kenny Loggins song that doesn't share this film's title and ventures that we’re probably careening wildly into "The Danger Zone" with this one.

Also Updates On 'Mother Trucker,' Discusses 'Hustle & Flow' Sequel Pitch Craig Brewer causes a few differences in opinion here at The Playlist. Some of us find his two big films to date, "Hustle & Flow" and "Black Snake Moan" somewhere between overrated and terrible, while this writer happens to find both grimy fun, with some smart things to say about racial and sexual politics, and an unusually good sense of musicality. Whichever side of the fence you fall, there can't have been many who were happy when Brewer signed on to direct the long-in-the-offing remake of "Footloose" for Paramount, which hits theaters in October.
