With Zac Efron gone and Chace Crawford confirmed to fill Kevin Bacon's dancing shoes in the coming remake of "Footloose," there have been several rumors about which young Hollywood starlet might play Ariel Moore, the part originally played by Lori Singer in 1984.
It seems like every young woman in Hollywood has had her name tossed in the "Footloose" ring, and who could blame them for wanting to star alongside Chace in the Kenny Ortega-directed flick?
Over the last few weeks, "Heroes" star Hayden Panettiere has been rumored to play the part, as has Amanda Bynes, who has some musical movie experience thanks to "Hairspray." Dance pro and "Dancing with the Stars" star Julianne Hough also reportedly auditioned for the role.
The latest name to have her name attached to the project is none other than Miley Cyrus. E! News reports that although she hasn't yet auditioned for the role, the 16-year-old is being considered, since she's already proved her onscreen singing and dancing talents with "Hannah Montana."
"They've expressed interest in Miley for the part," a source close to Miley told the site. Another source added that Cyrus "is definitely in the mix."
"Footloose" is supposed to begin filming in March 2010, so it is only a matter of time before we learn which lady will get to be Ginger Rogers to Chace's Fred Astaire.
