Breaking: Derek Hough Taking Leave from DWTS

It looks like fame and fortune are going to keep Derek Hough away from this next season of Dancing with the Stars.

Producers confirmed to Access Hollywood that Derek would take a break to film Cobu 3-D, a dance-centric retelling of Romeo and Juliet.

“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,” executive producer Conrad Green said in a statement.

Hough has won back-to-back mirrorball trophies on the hit show with Jennifer Grey and Nicole Scherzinger.
