As J-14 first reported, Zac Efron will no longer be in the remake of Footloose. There were rumors swirling that Gossip Girl hottie Chace Crawford would be replacing Zac as the lead character, Ren -- and J-14 can confirm that those rumors are true! Chace has officially signed on!
But every hot guy needs a leading lady -- and many of your favorite stars are up for the role of Ariel. Dancing With the Stars' Julianne Hough, Heroes' Hayden Panettiere, Hairspray's Amanda Bynes, and most recently, Miley Cyrus, have reportedly auditioned for the movie, which starts filming in March 2010.
Have you even seen the original Footloose? Do you think Chace will be a good Ren? Which actress do you think would rock the role of Ariel?
