Everybody just wants to dance.

Add "Dancing with the Stars" hoofer Julianne Hough to the list of actors dancing around "Footloose," according to Entertainment Weekly. The mag says Hough has auditioned for the remake's lead female role.

"Gossip Girl" star Chace Crawford has already signed on as the main character, a role that just months ago was seen as a centerpiece for "High School Musical's" Zac Efron.

"Footloose" will update the 1984 Kevin Bacon classic about a town where teens are taught dancing is a sin. It takes one out-of-towner, in this case Crawford's Ren, to show the locals dancing can be good clean fun.
