DWTS’ Hough Joins “Footloose” Remake

“Dancing With the Stars” regular Julianne Hough has joined the cast of the “Footloose” remake says The Hollywood Reporter.

Kevin Bacon and Lori Singer starred in the 1984 original, which told the story of a rebellious outsider who moves to a new town where music and dancing are banned and proceeds to shake everything up.

Chace Crawford takes over the lead role in the remake which begins shooting in March. Dancer, singer and choreographer Hough’s role was not specified.

Kenny Ortega (“High School Musical”) is producing and directing the feature from a script by Susannah Grant. Craig Zadan, Neil Meron and Dylan Sellers are producing.
