HEROES star Hayden Panettiere is among the leading ladies in consideration for a role in the new Footloose film.
Gossip Girl star Chace Crawford has reportedly replaced Zac Efron as the lead in the musical movie and Panettiere is keen to play his love interest, Ariel, according to reports.
The actress/singer has already auditioned for the role - and now she's among the frontrunners to land the role Lori Singer played in the 1984 film.
