Chace Crawford in "Footloose"

Chace Crawford in "Footloose"

GOSSIP GIRL star Chace Crawford will star in the remake of the classic 80’s movie “Footloose”. He will play Ren McCormack, the rebellious teenager with a big heart that just wanted to dance. Ren was famously played by Kevin Bacon in the original movie. Chace got the part when Zac Efron, who was originally signed on as the lead, stepped down.

No word yet on who Chace’s leading lady will be but rumors are swirling that Miley Cyrus, Amanda Bynes, Hayden Panettierre and Julianne Hough are all in the running. Personally, my vote would go to the lovely Julianne. It’s a dancing movie, it should go to a dancer.

As or Chace – can he even dance? He must have had to dance a little during the audition process, right? I just can’t see Nate Archibald letting loose, none the less Footloose.

I guess the more important question is, what will the new Footloose look like? Will it be a remake of the original or a re-inspired version? Certainly the 80’s dance numbers in the original film will be updated, but at the same time it’s those very dances that are so special to so many fans (right Heather?). I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.

YOU Cast Footloose…
We’ve got Chace Crawford, but there are other important roles still to be cast. Tell us who YOU think should be cast in the new Footloose.

  • Ren McCormack (Kevin Bacon)…Chace Crawford
