Chace Crawford Will Not Be in FOOTLOSE
The remake of the 80’s hit movie FOOTLOSE may be in jeopardy as male lead Chace Crawford has backed out of his role. Crawford decided he wouldn’t have time to devote to the move with his obligations to the CW show ‘Gossip Girl.’
EW reports that Paramount had planned to star Crawford with ‘Dancing With the Stars’ Julianne Hough, and filming was to start this spring. The movie has been plagued with cast and director issues since the inception of the movie. Zac Efron was the first choice for the male lead.
Although the production schedule for ‘Footloose‘ has been put on hold for the time being, a nationwide search is expected to start for a new male lead.
