    Chace Crawford: Footloose Tripped Up by Gossip?

    Things are apparently getting really close for Chace Crawford and the Footloose remake.

    How close?

    I'm told the latest negotiations have gotten down to the nitty-gritty of scheduling.

    A source reports that Crawford is intent on starring in the movie, but the television show that has made him a star, Gossip Girl, may be getting in his dancing way.

    "There's a big overlap of when he'd have to shoot Footloose and the next season of Gossip Girl," my source said.

    And Gossip Girl producers haven't been able to rejigger Crawford's shooting schedule to accommodate Footloose. "Chace may be hiring a big-league attorney to come in and figure out how to make it work," the source said.

    Reps for Crawford and the movie declined to comment.

    As I was the first to report, Crawford quickly auditioned for the updated take on the '80s classic flick after 17 Again star Zac Efron ditched the project in favor of nonmusic-centric projects.

    Crawford is currently shooting director Joel Schumacher's Twelve opposite Kiefer Sutherland, 50 Cent, Ellen Barkin and Emma Roberts.
