Actress Andie MacDowell has joined the cast of Craig Brewer's upcoming remake Footloose, which is already set to be released on April 1, 2011.

Andie MacDowell will play Vi Moore, the wife of Dennis Quaid's Reverend Shaw Moore, who despises the music the kids of his sleepy Southern town listen to, and who tries to ban rock and roll music. Kenny Wormald and Julianne Hough will star as the youngsters who rebel against Moore through their song and dance.
