We guess these screen tests went well, as "Dancing with the Stars" pro dancer and country singer Julianne Hough has now landed the lead female role in Paramount's remake of Footloose. The casting is contingent on the studio and Hough working out scheduling, but she would star opposite Chace Crawford.I'm cautiously excited about this because it could do great things for her career. On the other hand, I was incredibly unimpressed with the original FL, so who knows? But it's Julianne, so if I'm able to, I'll be seeing it!!
Filming is set to begin in March with plans for a "more mature version" than the original, says Variety. Dylan Sellers is producing alongside Ortega, Craig Zadan -- a producer of the original film -- and Neil Meron.
Kenny Ortega, helmer of all three "High School Musical" films, will direct.
