Julianne Hough is ready to try her hand at acting.

We all know her from "Dancing with the Stars" and her country music career, but she also has a few films in the works, including the remake of Footloose and Burlesque.

Footloose has gone through its share of ups and downs as it has changed actors (Zac Efron to Chace Crawford, who just dropped out) and directors (Kenny Ortega to Craig Brewer). Hough has still remained attached to the project throughout it all and recently spoke to The Boot about the role.

"This has been such an ongoing thing for me. Everybody's read so much about it, and [they're thinking], ';Would they just shoot this movie already?' But I could not be more excited now than before because there has been so much direction and growth through the movie. It was going to be this singing, dancing, big shebang movie, and now it's going to be more like the original and really, really holding all the key points from the movie. It's great for me, because I feel like it's a real performance, acting piece for me. I don't sing or dance in it, so it's going to be really fun and challenging. The director, Craig Brewer, he's unbelievable. He did ';Hustle & Flow' and ';Blacksnake Moan,' so it's going to be edgier, still PG-13, but it's definitely going to be a little edgy."

Who do you think would make the perfect male lead in Footloose? Are you happy or sad they are remaking the movie?
