RUMOR OR REEL?: Jon M. Chu Will Direct Disney's 'Step Up 3-D'!!!!

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':

"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."

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.

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)!!! ;-)

Hey I want to say Thank You Jon for putting SU2 out on my B-Day. It made the evening end with a flare. And to SU3D, oh yes bring it. I know it would be awesome. Toya 2-14

It would be great if they took the girl playing Camille in the first Step Up (Alyson Stoner) and gave her a big role since she's older now and an amazing dancer! And it would be awesome to somehow incorporate Tyler, Nora, Andie, and Chase... I can't speak for everyone else but I don't mind if the movie is 8 hours long, haha! Oh and Jon Chu is definitely one of the most talented directors!

A 3rd movie sounds badass but doing the whole 3D effect thing sounds... different. Its going to be a win or lose situation in making the film. Matters how Jon Chu pulls it off. But in conclusion... so for the 3rd movie but kind of unsure about the 3D part.

I hope that he brings back the characters from the first two movies. I hate it when movies have sequels and the original characters are not in it. GOOD LUCK and I cant wait to see the
3rd one already!!!!

I have enjoyed the Step Up movies and I would love to see them keep going. However, I believe that if you have Channing play a bigger part ( like maybe come back to dance with "Andie") then it will be a better movie. Channing is a great actor and a great dancer. He brings the Step Up movies to life and shows you that anyone can do anything as long as they put their heart and mind to it.
Also a bonus would be Channing in 3-D!!!!!
BRING BACK CHANNING!!!!!

Step Up and Step Up 2 were GREAT...but i really hope to see Channing in the 3rd movie along with jenna dewan from the first movie as well has the cast from the second movie. I think having all those actors/actresses together for the 3rd movie would make for the best one ever!!! Can't wait....Goood luck jon.
