The 'Dancing with the Stars' two-time winner is in negotiation to share screen with 'Gossip Girl' actor Chace Crawford in her potential major big screen debut.

Julianne Hough, the two-time champion of "Dancing with the Stars", is officially in talks to join the cast of Paramount Pictures' remake of "Footloose". The Hollywood Reporter came out with a story that the singer/dancer is pursuing to make her film debut and join Chace Crawford in the project.

Hough was previously rumored to have auditioned for the role of Ariel Moore which was once made famous by Lori Singer. About her, director Kenny Ortega has said during his appearance at 2009 MTV Movie Awards, "I love her. I adore her. I'm a big fan of hers. Not only how beautiful but how deep her talent goes."

Beside this 20-year-old, other famous celebrities who reportedly also were considered for the Ariel role were Hayden Panettiere, Amanda Bynes and Miley Cyrus.

"Footloose" centers on a rebellious outsider who moves into a new town where music and dancing are forbidden. The outsider then proceeds to shake everything up. Kevin Bacon and Lori Singer previously co-starred on the original movie.

Kenny Ortega, the man who directed "High School Musical" series, will helm and produce the film. Also joining him are "Agent Cody Banks" and "Hairspray" producers Neil Meron and Dylan Sellers as well as Craig Zadan, who worked on the 1984 original.
