FOOTLOOSE Star Julianne Hough to Appear on GMA, 10/13
"Dancing With the Stars" pro and upcoming star of the highly anticipated remake FOOTLOOSE, Julianne Hough, will be appearing on 'Good Morning America' this Thursday, October 13th, to discuss the upcoming movie.
Hough will join Kenny Worlmald, Dennis Quaid and Andie MacDowell in the film. Craig Zadan, who also served as a producer on the original film, joins his longtime creative partner Neil Meron ("Chicago") and producers Brad Weston and Dylan Sellers ("Agent Cody Banks") on the remake. Oscar winning songwriter Dean Pitchford, who wrote the screenplay and songs for the original movie, will executive produce. Brewer ("Hustle And Flow," "Black Snake Moan") will shoot from a script he adapted from Pitchford's original.
Julianne Hough made her feature film debut in "Burlesque" last year, opposite Christina Aguilera and Cher. She has also released two country albums in the last few years. Her co-star in film, Kenny Worlmald, appeared in the MTV series "Dancelife", and recently toured with Justin Timberlake. The film will mark the first major U.S. feature film role for the Boston native.
The movie will feature choreography from Jamal Sims, who recently worked with Madonna on her Sticky & Sweet Tour. Sims has choreographed countless movies and videos, as well as last year's Neil Patrick Harris' production of the award-winning musical RENT starring Nicole Scherzinger and Vanessa Hudgens, which played at the Hollywood Bowl.
