Chace Crawford is in final negotiations for the lead role in the upcoming revival of Kevin Bacon’s 1984 film Footloose. There’s only one problem: his hit CW show, Gossip Girl.
According to a scoop from E!’s Mark Malkin, the G.G. shooting schedule has put a major kink in plans for Chace to star in Footloose and show producers have been able unable to adjust the schedule to accommodate the movie musical.
“There’s a big overlap of when he’d have to shoot Footloose and the next season of Gossip Girl,” a source said. “Chace may be hiring a big-league attorney to come in and figure out how to make it work.”
