“Dancing with the Stars” mainstay Julianne Hough will be the female lead in Kenny Ortega’s “Footloose” redo, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Hough, a dancer, singer and choreographer, will play the role made famous by Lori Singer in the 1984 original. Chace Crawford plays the Kevin Bacon role.

The original flick told the story of a rebellious outsider who moves to a new town where music and dancing are banned and proceeds to shake everything up. The remake will essentially follow the same storyline – but it’ll be based more on the “Footloose” musical, than the first film.

The new “Footloose” is expected to shoot next March.
