Julianne's going to be in the movies: Footloose

It took a little while to get the details all worked out but Julianne Hough got the part she was going after in the remake of FOOTLOOSE...
Here's the story from the Hollywood trade press:

Singer, professional dancer and two-time winner of ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars” 20-year-old Julianne Hough will be starring in the remake of 1984’s “Footloose.”

Two-time winner of ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars” professional dancer Julianne Hough will be starring in a remake of 1984’s “Footloose.”
“It's Hough's first majorfilm role. Crawford signed on a month ago to star after Zac Efron decided in March against toplining another tuner after ‘High School Musical 3’ and ‘Hairspray.’”

Hough will play opposite Chace Crawford, who can be seen regularly on the CW series, “Gossip Girl.” Other rumored cast members include Amanda Bynes, who starred in the 2007 remake of “Hairspray,” and Hayden Panettiere, who starred in the 2000 sports drama motion picture, “Remember the Titans,” and is a series regular on NBC’S science fiction drama, “Heroes.”

Dylan Sellers, Kenny Ortega and Neil Meron will produce alongside Craig Zadan, who was a producer on the original Kevin Bacon get up and dance classic.

The original “Footloose” generated one of the biggest selling soundtracks of that time period and catapulted Kevin Bacon to superstardom. Since “Footloose,” Bacon has starred in such blockbuster movies as 1991’s Oliver Stone directed “JFK,” 1992’s “A Few Good Men,” 1995’s “Apollo 13” and 2003’s “Mystic River.”

John Lithgow, Dianne Wiest, the late Chris Penn and Sarah Jessica Parker also had roles in the original “Footloose.”

New Flavor Friday from Blue Bell..

From KHOU-TV Houston:  BRENHAM, TX -- Blue Bell Ice Cream is teasing a new flavor on its social media feeds. The Texas-based ice cream company has been slowly reintroducing its flavors to many of the markets it had withdrawn from after last year's fatal Listeria outbreak forced them to completely shut down production for a time. During the shutdown, the company worked with outside experts to control and eliminate potential sources of Listeria inside the Texas and Oklahoma facilities where the outbreak originated. While production of the iconic brand has resumed, not all of the company's flavors that were being produced prior to the plant closings are available. Blue Bell has been taking a measured reintroduction, and now has product available in most states and markets where they were prior to the closings. In this week's social media tease, the company says the new flavor will have fans "dancing in the grocery store aisles." Our newest flavor is a combination o…

Text messages and tweets by three fugitive siblings who shot at a police officer and robbed a bank reveal a dangerous mindset and a firm bond between the siblings, "We've certainly seen their mindset when...

A few hours later, they robbed a bank in Georg…
