Now that Gossip Girl hunk Chace Crawford has been confirmed for the male lead in the upcoming Footloose remake, it’s time to nail down the female lead—and E! Online reports that Hannah Montana star Miley Cyrus is in contention.

“They’ve expressed interest in Miley for the part,” reveals a source close to Cyrus. Meanwhile, an insider for the production confirms that the 16-year-old “is definitely in the mix.”

Cyrus will be facing some stiff competition for the part: HeroesHayden Panettiere, Amanda Bynes and Dancing With the Stars pro Julianne Hough have all auditioned for the part of the rebellious preacher’s daughter, which was filled in the 1984 original by Lori Singer.

Hopefully the producers will have made their choice by next March, when the film is due to begin shooting.
