A new remake of an 80s classic might have found its lead actress. According to Entertainment Weekly, Dancing with the Stars pro dancer Julianne Hough will be screen testing for the lead role in Footloose.
Paramount Pictures confirmed the news with the site, and it was said that Hough's recent success as a country singer could bode well for her chances at the lead role.
"It's a much more singing-intensive movie for the female lead," said producer Neil Meron. Kenny Ortega is directing the film and Chace Crawford has recently been set to star in the remake.
