MacDowell to play Quaid's wife?

Andie MacDowell and Dennis Quaid are reportedly set to play a married couple once again.

The US stars previously acted as husband and wife in HBO's Emmy-nominated 2001 movie Dinner With Friends.

Now Andie has signed on to play the patient wife of Dennis's character - a righteous, rock music-hating reverend - in the upcoming Footloose remake, according to Entertainment Weekly.

Dennis has already signed on for writer-director Craig Brewer's remake of the 1984 movie about a small town that bans dancing.

The movie also features Kenny Wormald and Julianne Hough as the teenage leads.

Andie is currently shooting the new Fox TV series Lone Star with Jon Voight, and her indie film Daydream Nation - in which she stars opposite Kat Dennings and Josh Lucas - will screen at the Toronto Film Festival.
