The professional dancer-turned actress will tout the remake of the '80s classic next Tuesday (ahead of its Oct. 14 release in theaters).

Her boyfriend, Ryan Seacrest, first hinted at Hough's return in an interview with her brother, Derek Hough (also a dancer on DWTS), on his KIIS-FM radio show.

"I'll be dancing with [co-star] Kenny [Wormald]. We will definitely be dancing to Footloose, but we will have a few tricks up our sleeves in the beginning," Hough tells USA Today. Wormald plays Kevin Bacon's role.

Hough also discussed a few of her other upcoming projects with USA Today. For Rock of Ages, "I sing throughout the entire movie but I only have one really big dance number," she says.

She plays dramatic with Russell Brand in Diablo Cody's untitled directorial debut as well.

"It's a very different movie for both me and Russell," she says. "There is no singing or dancing. I play a burn victim who survived a plane accident. She's a heavy Christian who decides to go to Vegas to explore the other side for one night."
