The Gossip Girl star will apparently be “too busy” to commit to the film.

Anyone who was looking forward to seeing Chace Crawford “kick off his Sunday shoes” will be sorely disappointed – the glossy-haired heartthrob has quit the upcoming remake of the hit ‘80s film Footloose because Gossip Girl is keeping him busy.
The film has been plagued with problems – Chace was actually the second actor tapped to fill Kevin Bacon’s shoes. Zac Efron was initially approached for the film, but he declined the offer. According to People, the film has also had trouble with the script and the director.
Are you looking forward to this film, even without Chace in it, or do you think the classic should remain untouched? (People)
