According to Variety, Disney is moving forward with a third installment of its hit dance franchise “Step Up,” tentatively titled Step Up 3-D.
The film will become the latest 3-D live-action film from the studio, with Step Up 2 the Streets director Jon Chu in talks to reprise.
Offspring Entertainment partners Adam Shankman and Jennifer Gibgot will develop the film; the pair produced the first two “Step Up” pics.
“Step Up 2” earned a strong $28.7 million over the five-day Presidents Day weekend. The picture, co-financed by Disney and Summit Entertainment, cost $20 million to make.
This week, Shankman began directing the Adam Sandler starrer Bedtime Stories for Disney.
Among the projects that Offspring is developing at Disney are Undateable, a comedy scripted by Jack Angelo and Sam Brown (with Fuse Entertainment also producing); Monday, Monday, a Flint Wainess-scripted comedy that is a teenage Groundhog Day; Wish, a live-action Aladdin scripted by Bill Kelly (Enchanted); a Jason Filardi-scripted Topper remake that Offspring will produce with Mandeville, with Steve Martin starring; and a Don Scott-scripted remake of All of Me that has Queen Latifah attached to star.
