Chace Crawford Cut Loose From ‘Footloose’ Remake

Gossip Girl dreamboat Chace Crawford has backed out of his starring role in a Footloose remake. Chace was set to star in the remake after Zac Efron previously dropped out of the running for the role. Is this role poison to dreamboats or what?

An “insider” tells Entertainment Weekly that Gossip Girl’s shooting schedule got in the way of the film.

This isn’t the remake’s first bout with doom: the director and writer roles have been shuffled around like a deck of cards since Crawford signed on to do the film.

For those of you who live under a rock: the original 1984 Footloose starred a young Kevin Bacon and focused on a town where dancing was outlawed. Maybe all this trouble is the gods way of telling Hollywood to cool it with the ’80s movie remakes?
