Is Miley Cyrus Getting Footloose?

Is Miley Cyrus Getting Footloose?-photo

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: Heroes' Hayden 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.

In the meantime, have your say in the comments section: Do you think Miley Cyrus would be good in Footloose?

    Taylor has talent, but she sings just good enough to pull off what it is that she does, which is not country; it's bubble gum teen pop. The fact that Taylor was even put in the same catagory as vocal giants like Carrie Underwood makes me really not pay any attention to those awards.

    Ahh, Julienne or whateverr her name is looks a bitt too oldd. Hayden would be amazingg thoughh && Miley. Amanda is too funny, shes a comediann? It just wouldnt fitt, sorryy. :D So Miley or Hayden should get it, perferably Miley. Hayden just hadd a movie come out, (I love you Beth Cooper!) And Miley well, kindaa did. But she needs more experience! :)

    Ahhh, This is sortaa toughh. I like Miley && Hayden, but Miley seems to be rebelling more than any of emm. So she should get it if thats what the movies about. She'll have no problem doing it. I still like Miley thoughh, She just needs to be smart && erase those skanky little pictures off her phone after she sends emm to Nick or Justinn. Whoever it is at the timee! I still love youuu thoughhh! Skankkkkkk. =)

    All the Miley haters out there drop dead, you are all just jealous and Grudgeful because she is prettier and a better person than any of you could ever hope to be. She is kind and a gracious persone. So you can all go to hell and if it is God's will that she gets the part she will, so you can all just get lost and fall off the face of the earth. You are are all a bunch of Rats and skank whores. Wow. Look at what you're saying. You're calling Miley Cyrus haters rats and "skank whores" because we don't like a disney pop "princess".

    NOT Miley. She's way too young and doesn't have the Acting Chops. and while she maybe a good singer, she doesn't really have the chops to pull of the songs from Footloose.

    Any of them. Just not Miley. She isn`t a much of a fit. Besides, She`s too young for Chace.

    Err no I don't think Miley looks too good with Chace! Julianne would fit the role the best I think! They'll also have GREAT chemistry together! You are so write I mean Miley is only 16 and Chace is like 20 something so the best bet would to go with Julianne becuase she can sing,act and dance really well and she isn't owned by Disney and is over 16 (she is 20)

    When will Celebuzz post the Robert Pattinson hotel-room recording of his swamp-rock ode to Miley? I heard it the other day and it's a catchy little number.

    I think Miley is wayy to young...she's only 16 and Chace is 24! I think Julianne Hough or Amanda Bynes would be amazing!

    Miley too young 4 the role. She can't act sexy. She would look weird acting sexy. Julianne would b perfect 4 the part, she can sing, dance n act, cute figure n is gorgeous. Got to look a little sassy, sexy, etc. Her n Chace would make the perfect couple. Both of them have beautiful eyes too.

    Miley has already proved she is a great dancer,singer, and given the chance,could do a great job in the role even bringing singing into it.

    eeewww, f*ck no... slutty cyrus can not act and when she sings i wanna cut my ears off. i think hayden should get it. and miley has a really gross face. disney whore should just go and f*ck her 40 year old BF...

    Miley would be great! She can sing and act already. When i think of the other ones in the "mix". They can't do it all. Amanda was in Hairspray and they didn't make her sing or dance to much. Haydan, HELL TO THE NO. She would just be horrible, she really can't sing or dance or act for that matter. I can really see Hough acting either.

  • Liv

    I'd prefer Hollywood stop re-making old movies, cartoons, etc. They are never as good as the original.

    Amanda Bynes is cute and would be good for the role, but she can't sing, and we don't know if she can dance. Hough can dance, but I doubt if she can act at all, and she can't sing either. Hayden can't sing or dance. Miley can sing, dance and act...and she does all three better than anyone else. She would be perfect for the role. Plus she's cuter than anything...

    I think Miley is extremely talented for her age and really any age and she would do an incredible job. She has the pizazz and would certainly bring in a lot of fans and money to the production. perfect pick!

    Miley for sure! i can see her playing the rebellious type of girl. plus she would look way better with chace then those girls, and everyones use to amanda being a comedian, and when she portrays a serious role, no one takes her seriously. i guess hayden would be KINDA good, but i can't see her in the movie, but i guess shes good.

  • cans

    i think miley is so damn fugly. i actually want hayden to get the part. amanda's cool too. definitely NOT miley. EWWWWWW!

    Miley would be awesome for the part she can sing dance, act and shes awesome. I hope she gets the part she deserves it. You go girl God bless.

    I think Julianne Hough would be a much better fit, but Amanda's good too. These are the two I can see pulling off the "rebellious preacher's daughter" role. Hayden? Not so much.

    No, I prefer Hayden or Amanda.
