Dekker To Step Into Crawford's Footloose Shoes?

Actor THOMAS DEKKER is the frontrunner to take over from CHACE CRAWFORD in the FOOTLOOSE remake, according to a U.S. report.
The Gossip Girl hunk was set to tackle the role made famous by Kevin Bacon in the 1984 classic, but dropped out of the project last month (Apr10) citing "scheduling conflicts".
The Los Angeles Times reports that Dekker, best known for his role in Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, is preparing to step in to replace Crawford, and he's already hinted he has a "fun" big budget film in the pipeline.
He tells Digital Spy, "Right now I'm kind of closing this big, intimidating huge movie that I can't say what it is, but that will be a trip if we do that... (It's) a big fun movie, it's not very dark."
