”Shall We Dance?” is a summer movie we can’t wait to see


WHY WE CAN’T WAIT ”Chicago” hoofer Richard Gere and former Fly Girl Jennifer Lopez (pictured) tearing it up on the dance floor? This we gotta see.

BURNING QUESTION Can Gere’s current career heat overcome Lopez’s post-”Gigli” chill?

COME FOR The steamy late-night tango session between the two stars

STAY FOR The inspirational transformation of Lopez’s dance class (including (”The Station Agent”’s Bobby Cannavale, Lisa Ann Walter, and Stanley Tucci) into serious ballroom competitors.
