    (clockwise) Kevin Bacon and Lori Singer starred in 1984's "Footloose" now Hayden Panettiere and Chace Crawford may reprise their roles.

    "Heroes" star Hayden Panettiere is reportedly in the running for a role in the remake of "Footloose."

    Panettiere tried out for the role of Ariel Moore, the role Lori Singer had in the original 1984 film about a city boy who rocks a small town where music and dancing have been banned.

    So who will play Kevin Bacon's role of troublemaker Ren McCormack? According to E! it's "Gossip Girl" star Chace Crawford.

    Crawford has been linked to the role since "High School Musical" star Zac Efron pulled out because he didn't want to be cast in another musical movie.


    What the El!?! Editorial:

    I'm convinced that before I die I will have seen all the movies from my youth remade in some form or fashion.

    Seriously. How long before they ruin "Back to the Future" or  "Sound of Music" or "Breakfast Club?"
