Derek cutting Footloose?

Two-time Dancing With The Stars champ Derek Hough is interested in replacing Zac Efron in Paramount Studio’s upcoming remake of Footloose, show tipsters have reportedly told The Chicago Sun-Times.

Efron, who got his start appearing in Disney’s High School Musical franchise, dropped out of the film based on Kevin Bacon’s 1984 hit last week.
