Julianne Hough To Tour While 'Footloose' Filming Is Delayed

Posted by Laura Travis on 03/01/2010

Filiming for Julianne Hough's role in the remake of Footloose has been postponed, and Hough told CMT Radio that she will use the delay in filming as an opportunity to tour. The film was originally to be directed by Kenny Ortega, who left the project to finish his other project, the Michael Jackson film, This Is It.  The new director for Footloose is Craig Brewer.

Hough said, "The new director is shooting a movie right now that he wrote and is directing, so it's going to be postponed for a while -- which I'm actually really excited about because I get to tour. I get to go back on the road and see the fans. And like I've said before, I love doing the movies and stuff, but being able to do something live is so fulfilling."

Currently, Hough is also working on another film with stars Christina Aguilera, Kristen Bell, Eric Dane, Stanley Tucci and Cher, titled Burlesque.
