Director Kenny Ortega Shakes Off ‘Footloose’ Remake

Director Kenny Ortega is hanging up his dancing shoes. Ortega announced this weekend he would be pulling out of the Paramount remake of Footloose, starring Gossip Girl‘s Chace Crawford and Dancing With the Stars pro Julianne Hough.


“Coming off the extraordinary project, Michael Jackson‘s This is It, director Kenny Ortega has decided it is premature for him to commit to his next film and will not be moving forward with Footloose as previously reported,” a rep for the director said in a press statement.

Ortega and Paramount had reportedly been in a dispute over the Footloose remake over the film’s direction and budget. Paramount reportedly wanted to do the film as a drama and keep the budget as low as possible. Ortega, however, allegedly wanted to include lavish dance numbers and desired a bigger budget. Considering Ortega helmed all three High School Musical films, no big surprise there.

Zac Efron was first slated to star in the Footloose remake, taking over the role the original film’s star Kevin Bacon, but was later replaced by Crawford.

Tommy + Chace= Gossiping Girls

The “Superhero” themed Met Costume Institute Ball in New York last week brought out a wide variety of celebs and socialites, along with some very interesting “costumes”. Not gonna detail the clothes- suffice to say there was the usual good, bad and incredibly fugly.

Tommy and “Kate” Cruise were there, in Armani. Several of the Gossip Girl cast attended as well, including Chace Crawford and Penn Badgley. Penn was supposed to be the show’s breakout hunk, but Chace seems to have eclipsed him- even though Penn’s film work includes the provocative yet acclaimed independent feature “The Fluffer”!

Despite Penn’s provocative work, Tommy Girl brushed him aside in his rush to get next to Chace! Apparently, Tommy’s a BIG fan of the show! Oh, and Kate is too. You know, because they both love watching cute boys great acting. Tommy and co. dissed the rest of the cast, and only talked to Chace- leaving Penn pissed. This was supposed to be PENN’s big night, not a Chacefest! Adding insult to injury, Chace was the only one invited to George Clooney’s exclusive afterparty!

You KNOW Tommy slipped Chace his digits ‘cuz Chace is single now! Carrie Underwood got tired of his party-hopping, cabana boy bromance with JC Chasez. And, if you put your hands over your ears, “Chace” sounds alot more like “Kate” than “Penn” does. Tommy’s crazy, but careful!
