Chase Crawford to star in Footloose

Chase Crawford to star in Footloose

The Gossip Girl star is set to strap on his dancing shoes and take on the lead in a remake of the musical film.

We were wondering who would be taking on the toe-tapping role, ever since Zac Efron sensationally turned it down a mere matter of weeks ago...

But as sad as we are not to see more of La Efron, it's no secret that is a big fan of all things Gossip Girl - so we're delighted that we're going to be seeing more of the lovely Chase Crawford!

The 23-year-old will play Ren McCormack - the rebellious dancing teen made famous by Kevin Bacon in the 1984 original. And with High School Muscial director Kenny Ortega taking the helm, it's guaranteed to be an all-singing, all-dancing fun fest, and we cannot wait!

We're going to have to though, because shooting isn't set to start until March next year (boo!)

But one question remains.... Who will fill the dancing shoes of his leading lady? With Hayden Panettiere, Miley Cyrus and Amanda Bynes all rumoured to have auditioned for the part, we reckon this is going to be one hell of a pairing. We'll let you know as soon as the lucky lady is announced!
