Yes, Chace Crawford is taking over for Zac Efron in the upcoming re-make of Footloose. Is this the dramatic beginning to a heartthrob dance-off? The Gossip Girl star recently spoke up about the switch which lead us to wonder what Efron thought of the replacement:
“I’ve always thought Footloose was a great project and Chace is an amazing choice,”’ he told RadarOnline.com. “I can’t wait to see it!”
“I know Zac and we’re actually friends,” Crawford had told EW.com on Thursday. “He’s gotta make the best choice for his career at this point and I have to make the best for mine and luckily it worked out for both of us.” Crawford stepped into Efron’s dancing shoes when he decided he wanted to go another direction with his next project.
The updated spin on the 1984 hit will start filming next March.
