Derek Hough - Derek Hough May Quit Dancing With The Stars

Derek Hough has hinted he might quit 'Dancing with the Stars'.

The professional dancer wants to pursue a film career and has implied the upcoming special series of the popular ABC show, 'Dancing with the Stars All-Stars', will be his last.

The 27-year-old heartthrob told the USA Today newspaper: ''This season is kind of my swan song. It's my last hurrah.''

Program favorite Derek will make his acting debut in 'Cobu' next year, and admitted he feels it is time to move on to new projects because 'DWTS' is holding him back due to the hectic schedule.

He revealed: ''It's really difficult to do both, impossible really. This show is full time ... there is zero flexibility. And I want to do other projects. I want to push myself into other areas.

''And this is my 10th season, a great benchmark. You just kind of feel it. I need to take that chance. It's important.''

'So You Think You Can Dance' judge Adam Shankman is backing Derek's career move and claims the dancer is destined for international stardom.

He said: ''I think he's the next (breakout). He feels a moment away to me.''
