It was announced that Chace Crawford (Gossip Girl) has been cast in the lead role for the remake of Footloose. Crawford was offered the role after Zac Efron dropped out of the project back in March. An official announcement is expected today. The lead role in the original Footloose was held by Kevin Bacon.
Footloose is set to begin shooting in March of 2010, and will also star Hayden Panettiere, Amanda Bynes and professional dancer Julianne Hough (Dancing With the Stars).
