'Step Up 3D' News, Casting Call, and Set Photos from Director Jon M. Chu

We've been getting a lot of visitors to CTU lately looking for info on ‘Step Up 3D‘. Although I think there's very little chance (pretty much 0%) that Channing Tatum will be in the third installment of the ‘Step Up‘ franchise that he started with Jenna Dewan in 2006, I still follow the progress of ‘Step Up 3D‘ as it films in New York City (and Paris later in the year) via the official Twitter of director Jon M. Chu.

You can check out a slideshow of director Jon M. Chu and producer Adam Shankman's behind-the-scenes photos from the set below...

The movie will be filming in New York through July and is holding an extras casting call today as I type this post. I just learned that Comer & Gallucio Casting has organized the casting call, and they are looking for all types and ethnicities ages 18 and over. Some specific types they are looking for include the following...
  • People who can portray hip hop types

  • People who know how to tango and/or have hip hop dance experience

  • People with tattoos, visible piercings, funky hairstyles, hipster types, skateboarders, old school roller skaters, 18-24 year olds, college students, and more!

As I previously mentioned, the casting call is today (Saturday, June 13th). SAG members were seen from 9:30am - 10:30am (Compensation: $130.00/8hrs) and non union extras will be seen from 11:00am - 4:30pm (Compensation: $80.00/10hrs) at the Church of St. Paul the Apostle on Columbus Avenue at 60th Street in New York City. You should come dressed to be photographed.

If you want to know more about the storyline of the film, you'll find it in my previous post, and get the latest behind-the-scenes scoop strait from director Jon M. Chu by subscribing to his official Twitter and Youtube channel.

Step Up 3D‘ is set to hit an IMAX theater near you on August 6, 2010.
