It’s interesting that just yesterday we posted our coverage of the set visit for Armored which took place February 26 of 2008. While we were on-set, Columbus Short was asked specifically about a sequel to Stomp the Yard. We quote…
Q: Have you talked at all about another “Stomp the Yard”?
Short: Oh, no. I wouldn’t be in it.
Q: You wouldn’t?
Short: No. Come on! Some things are better left alone. I’ve learned that. I had my share of a sequel. I was in the “Save the Last Dance” sequel. That was cool. You’ve got to work your way up. (Laughs)
Fast forward to today and The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that writer/director Rob Hardy will helm the sequel, to be titled Stomp the Yard 2: Homecoming.
The trade says that Short is now in negotiations to reprise his role as DJ, a master street dancer.
The sequel is set to shoot early next month in Atlanta.
