Summit Entertainment has signed music video director Scott Speer to helm the next chapter in the popular Step Up franchise, tentatively titled Step Up 4Ever.
First announced last year, the franchise dance film will, like its 2010 predecessor, be shot in 3D. Step Up 2: The Streets and Step Up 3D director Jon Chu will remain with the franchise as an executive producer as he prepares to tackle Paramount’s G.I. Joe 2. Speer previously collaborated with Chu on an episode of the web series “The Legion of Extraordinary Dancers” (LXD).
Step Up 4Ever is targeted for release sometime in 2012.
