Julianne Hough to romance Chace Crawford in 'Footloose'
Chace Crawford finally has his Lori Petty.
After a long casting process, Crawford, who will fill the dancing shoes originated by Kevin Bacon, will star alongside Julianne Hough in a new musical version of "Footloose." According to Variety, it's the first major film role for the "Dancing With the Stars" pro dancer and country singer.
Unlike the 1984 hit, the new "Footloose" will be a traditional musical and is being directed by "High School Musical's" Kenny Ortega.
Assuming scheduling is worked out, production will begin this March once Crawford finishes the upcoming season of "Gossip Girl."
