    Chace Crawford is Footloose - Taking over for Zac Efron
[an error occurred while processing this directive]

    Chace Crawford of TV's Gossip Girl is stepping into Zac Efron's dancing shoes in Paramount's remake of Footloose. Efron, to the shock of producers, bowed out of the project last month in order to focus on more challenging, non-musical material.

    It had been rumored for quite some time that Crawford would take over for Efron, but it's only now been confirmed, since filming Footloose will have to coincide with Crawford's Gossip Girl commitments. The film has a March 2010 start date and is said to be edgier and more mature than the 1984 original, which starred Kevin Bacon in one of his earliest roles.
