As you probably read here on Feltbeats.com, a group of Tom Felton fans have started a campaign to get Tom Felton cast as Ren in the new remake of Footloose. We even created a Twitter contest where fans could tweet their best reasons why Tom should be in the film. We got some GREAT responses, and we hope to feature them on the site in the next day or so – including announcing the winners!
The director of the upcoming Footloose remake, Craig Brewer – who is currently scouting Georgia for Footloose filming locations – has noticed the campaign and remarked on his own Twitter account:
Attention all @TomFelton fans that have tweeted me in the campaign to cast Tom Felton as Ren in Footloose! I hear you. Y’all are true fans.
So, let’s hope this get some wheels rolling in our campaign! =)
PS Contest tweets are being reviewed and winners will be announced in a day or so! Thanks everyone for the HUGE participation!
