A burgeoning film career will keep the dancer out of the ballroom!

Derek Hough will not be one of the pros on the next season of Dancing With The Stars! Instead, he is preparing to strut his stuff on the silver screen!

The seven-season veteran of DWTS, 25, will helm the upcoming dance movie Cobu 3D, which is a loose retelling of Romeo and Juliet set in the world of combating dance crews.

DWTS executive producer Conrad Green tells Us Magazine, “We wish Derek the best as he takes time off from Dancing With the Stars to pursue his film career and look forward to having him return to the show in the Fall.”

Although we’re bummed Derek won’t be on to shake his groove thang, we will still tune in when the 13th season of DWTS premiers in March on ABC.
