Julianne Hough Up For “Footloose”

“Dancing with the Stars” professional dancer Julianne Hough has screen tested for the lead role in Paramount Pictures “Footloose” remake says Entertainment Weekly.

Producer Neil Meron says Hough’s success as a country singer means she has a good chance to nab the role which is expanded from the original – “It’s a much more singing-intensive movie for the female lead.”

Kenny Ortega is directing the film and Chace Crawford is set to star in the lead role.
