I am extremely happy to say that this one is "REEL"!!! Because of the phenomenal success of Channing Tatum's 'Step Up' and 'Step Up 2: The Streets', Disney has already decided to greenlight a third film called 'Step Up 3-D'! You heard me right people...parts of the movie will actually be filmed in 3-D!!!!
Jon M. Chu, the insanely talented director of 'Step Up 2', contacted me to let me know he is currently in negotiations to direct 'Step Up 3-D'. After seeing what he did with 'Step Up 2', I am keeping my fingers crossed that the negotiations work out, and we get to see another Jon Chu movie on the big screen soon. He's an extremely cool guy and very passionate about his projects and that passion translates well on screen.
Even though he's not officially directing the movie yet, here's what Jon has to say about 'Step Up 3-D':
If you want to learn a little more about Jon, feel free to check out a couple of great articles in The New York Times and the Palo Alto Daily News.
"The MOST AMAZING DANCE MOVIE EVER and the FIRST 3D DANCE MOVIE since Michael Jackson's Captain EO. If you thought Step up 2 The Streets was explosive...this will knock you straight out of your socks. Get ready. It's on. Well, almost. We just have to work out our deals, which could mean anything."
Most importantly, I want everyone here at CTU to wish Jon good luck on getting this directing gig. I don't know at this point if Channing will be a part of the new movie, but I can safely say that we all can't wait to see 'Step Up 3-D' in theaters (directed by Jon. M. Chu)!!! ;-)
