Sources tell E! that Chace, 23, tested over the weekend for the lead role of Ren McCormick. They shared, “He did really well.”
Zac, 21, recently dropped out of the flick after another script change was ordered. A Paramont Pictures press release stated, “Footloose is a project we’ve longed to see rebooted for a new generation. While Zac in no longer attached, we remain excited and committed to the collective brain trust of [HSM turned Footloose director] Kenny Ortega, Neil Meron and Craig Zadan, who will reinvigorate the franchise. Their fresh take on the film will undoubtedly be filled with the same kind of breakout performances that we’ve come to expect from them.”
WHAT DO YOU THINK about Chace putting on his dancing shoes — YAY or NAY?
