According to Variety Dancing With the Stars pro dancer and country/western singer Julianne Hough will make her feature film debut opposite Chace Crawford in Paramount’s upcoming remake of Footloose.
Chace Crawford signed on to star after teen heartthrob Zac Efron decided in March against toplining another musical after High School Musical 3 and Hairspray. The original version of Footloose became a sensation and rocketed Kevin Bacon to stardom nearly overnight.
Plans are for this to be a more mature version of Footloose. Dylan Sellers is producing alongside Kenny Ortega (High School Musical), Craig Zadan, one of the producers of the original Footloose and Neil Meron.
Filming is set to begin in March ’10
