Chace Crawford Cuts Loose From 'Footloose'

Chace Crawford is no longer involved in the remake of Footloose.

The 24-year-old actor will begin work on Gossip Girl again this summer, which is when Paramount hopes to begin production on Footloose, according to EW.

Chace became attached to the project about a year ago, replacing Zac Efron. Kenny Ortega left the project a little over six months ago and several rewrites have taken place on the script.

Julianne Hough is still set to play the love interest in the film.

    …good. i woukld have left too. it’s a crappy project that’s taken way to long to start filming. that’s a clear sign it’s going to suck.

  • Kim

    This is awful. No I’m not going to see that movie.

    (but on the other side it’s a good choice, I don’t like remakes. Look at Fame!)

  • Jen

    Really good choice, Chace

  • Mrs Crawford

    Sounds ridiculous ..
    He’s hot by the way

  • gomezzzz

    Chace deserves to have a new upcoming project, he’s a good actor

  • flying dutchman

    Sounds like a tough choice.
    GG or terrible remake?

  • the truth

    loos like no one can stay on that project.

  • CyRuS SmIlEy

    I bet Julianne will quit soon

  • w

    The film just doesn’t need to be remade. Period. With all this rotating in and out of cat and crew, you’d think someone would realize that they should leave well enough alone and just scrap the thing entirely.

  • Selena gomez fan

    Chace must be Selena’s brother XD
    Or Taylor Swift’s???

  • Brandy

    glad that he quit this thing

  • he deserves to have a succesful career like Robert Pattinson. I like him even more than that stupid dude

  • Julie

    They should keep Chace on this project!!!
    I don’t want to see Footloose without him…
    Zac Efron, Kenny Ortega left the project so maybe it’s better that Chace quits it too. This movie won’t be good lol.

  • mandy

    Probably just saved his career with that choice.

  • Piper

    maybe they saw his “acting” on Gossip Girl and decided that the franchise already has enough problems ha ha.

  • Whamo

    Why does HW always feel the need to mess with classics? When do they come out as good or better than the original?

  • K.

    XD Yeah, Chace’s hotter than mr Pattinson.
    They’re both good actors although..


  • anonymous

    robert is a goodlooking actor. but I prefer Chace

  • wofsdsd

    he’s sexy
    although he can’t act for shit.

  • uhmm

    the movie will suck that’s why he pulled out

  • datingadoctor

    he only wants strate roles

  • Kelly

    No wonder he left, they’re pissing around with it so much.

  • yes man

    I hope the production will cut this, this is going to suck if so many people quit. Sorry Julianne Hough

  • wife

    I’m sad ’bout this.
    Chace needs to get bunch of other movies.

  • Art8Fashion

    I’m sooooooo glad he made this decision.

    I cringed when I heard he was involved with this project.

    Gossip Girl isn’t as interesting as it was the first season but I still tune in to see Chace.

    I do wish he still had the beautiful hairdo he had in the pilot eppie. Not really understanding the strange combed back hair do. Such a good looking man, it is such a pain to see the hairstylist jack up his hair every eppie.

    I almost wish the tiresome man bangs were back – almost.
