NEWS FLASH: 'Step Up 2' Will Begin Filming This Summer

I have to say that a sequel to Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan's extremely popular movie Step Up was no surprise to me, because any movie that breaks the $100 million dollar mark in theatre and DVD sales is going to attract a second look from the money guys and gals in Hollywood...which is why my grandchildren will probably be watching Spider-Man 24 in the coming years where our beloved Spidey fights the vicous government monster to get his social security.

Before you get excited about the prospect of seeing Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan in their beloved roles of Tyler and Nora, I have to quickly say that there is a pretty good chance that the sequel will focus on new characters or they will use other actors to play the roles. As Channing has said in many an interview, he is interested in pursuing more dramatic roles that he can really dig his teeth into at this point in his career. I would assume that Jenna Dewan is possibly doing the same thing too.

Step Up 2, scheduled to be released in 2008, will be directed by John Chu and will again be set at the Maryland School for the Arts. Shooting on the sequel is currently scheduled to start in July and Anne Fletcher (the director from the original Step Up) will be one of the producers.

Having Anne back will hopefully mean that the dancing will be as entertaining as in the original movie, but we will have to see if any of the actors from Step Up will return for "Step Up 2". Maybe Skinny will come back in a dream sequence or something. :-P

Whoever is in the movie, I enjoyed Step Up enough to know that I will be seeing the sequel and that is what they (the money guys and gals) are banking on.

hah thats cool, but honestly if channing and jenna aren't in the movie, i'm not sure if i'll see it... plus if only one of them was it in it that would be weird lol but i hope they are!!

Amy said...

oh yea, i meant to ask if you were positive that they won't be playing the roles or if you were just guessing.

i totally agree with Amy b cause i dont think it will be as good without channing and jenna b cause they are such great dancers and have such good chemistry and i would cry to see someone else play those roles!!!

I guarantee if channing and jenna aren't in it or aren't the main focus.. I won't watch and neither will america. Step up was such a big hit... why would you risk failure by changing the main characters? I wouldn't if i were you... that's a stupid mistake if you make it.

I think Step Up 2 will be great although they aren't the main characters, they wanna make a new story so they need diff characters but robert hoffman is an awesome dancer, you should see him and he's really funny. Him and channing were in she's the man :P
