13 Dances That Jon M. Chu’s New Nineties-Set Dance Movie Needs To Include

18 November 2014 9:00 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Director Jon M. Chu has already helped successfully usher the Step Up films into the realm of true franchise greatness — the filmmaker directed both Step Up 2: The Streets and Step Up 3D, ensuring a long life for the world’s most beloved dance franchise and don’t you dare argue that point with me — and now he looks to be turning his attention to a generation desperate for still more popping and locking. Deadline reports that Chu is now producing Can’t Touch This, a new dance feature that is billed as “a high school dance comedy set in the golden era of the 1990s.” Although the film’s specific storyline has not yet be revealed, it seems safe to assume that the dulcet tones of M.C. Hammer will prove to be a large part of the feature’s plot and/or soundtrack. If nothing else, we can surely expect to see a bevy of parachute »

90s dance movie Can’t Touch This in development with Jon M. Chu

18 November 2014 1:39 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having departed the Masters of the Universe reboot, Jon M. Chu seems to be looking to get back to his dance movie roots with Can’t Touch This, a dance movie based in the 1990s.

Chu has had much success from the teen-dance movie genre having directed fan favourites Step Up 2: The Streets and Step Up 3D and Can’t Touch This (named after the classic Mc Hammer song) will seem him depart from action movies like G.I. Joe: Retaliation. Chu has also just wrapped on a big screen adaptation of Jem and the Hollograms and recently opened up Chu Studios, which saw him produce dance webseries The Lxd.

Storyline for Can’t Touch This is being kept under wraps at the moment, but the script is being penned by Annie Mebane and Steve Basilone (Community) who have also worked on retro comedy The Goldbergs for ABC. It is »

Director Jon M. Chu Heading Back to the 90s for 'Can't Touch This'

17 November 2014 1:46 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Right now, G.I. Joe Retaliation director Jon M. Chu is busy with Jem and the Holograms, a big screen adaptation of the musical animated series of the same name. And after that, he'll continue a run of nostalgia with Can't Touch This, a high school dance comedy set during the increasingly old decade that is the 90s. Deadline reports Chu and his producing partner Hieu Ho have set up the project at Focus Features, returning Chu to the world of dance that launched his career in the form of films like Step Up 2: The Streets and Step Up 3D. And this one has great talent with plenty of nostalgia experience working on the script. The script will come from Annie Mebane and Steve Basilone, who have written on "Community" and ""Happy Endings." But what makes them perfect for this project is their work as producers on "The Goldbergs," the »

Jon M. Chu, Focus Features Step Up To ’90s-Set ‘Can’t Touch This’

17 November 2014 10:31 AM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: Jem and the Holograms and G.I. Joe: Retaliation helmer Jon M. Chu is going old school. He and producing partner Hieu Ho have sold to Focus Features new project Can’t Touch This, a high school dance comedy set in the golden era of the 1990s.

The teen dance milieu has been a fruitful one for Chu, who launched his career with fan favorite sequels Step Up 2: The Streets and Step Up 3D and has quickly become one of Hollywood’s in-demand studio directors. Storyline is being kept under wraps, although the title alone evokes a part of the decade that was too legit to quit.

Mebane and Basilone know their way around retro comedies; they’re producers on ABC’s ’80s-set The Goldbergs.

‘Step Up All In’ Review: No, Seriously — Shut Up and Dance (Video)

8 August 2014 8:32 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The “Step Up” franchise can be one of the most frustrating series in movies today — each film offers up transcendent moments featuring some truly electrifying dancing, but to get to those golden nuggets you have to sift through mounds of terrible writing and laughable acting. Even if you've resigned yourself to that trade-off, “Step Up All In,” the fifth chapter of this ongoing saga, doesn't rank among the best of these. The choreography falls short of the heights of “Step Up 2: The Streets” and “Step Up 3D,” and the plot isn't as goofily engaging as that of “Step »

All of the Dances in the Step Up Franchise, Ranked

8 August 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

With Step Up: All In — a.k.a. the fifth Step Up movie in the popping-and-locking franchise — in theaters this weekend, we felt that it was time to relive the past four Step Ups. From Channing Tatum's Tyler to Adam Sevani's Moose (and all the various crew members in between), we've seen so many lifts, so many spins, and so many snakes. But bigger doesn't always mean better, and neither does seniority when it comes to these movies. That's why we're ranking all of the dance sequences in the Step Up movies, from worst to best. (If you're wondering why there are so few dances from the first Step Up, you should watch it again. They don't dance as much! Or, at least, they don't do as many longer sequences as the movies that follow.)22. Dance battle in Washington Square Park, Step Up 3D Moose's prompt "return »

G.I. Joe 2 Director Jon M. Chu May Direct Now You See Me 2

12 June 2014 12:34 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

One of the more surprising box office hits of last year was the magician adventure pic Now You See Me.  The film had a solid opening weekend, but it continued to do swell business in the ensuing weeks, going on to gross $351.7 million worldwide against a budget of $75 million.  As with most successful studio films where everyone doesn’t die at the end, Summit Entertainment began to move forward on a prospective sequel.  Following the official Now You See Me 2 announcement, Summit expressed its desire to begin filming in 2014, and while director Louis Leterrier was expected to return, he’s currently busy gearing up to helm the action-comedy Grimsby.  As such, Summit is on the hunt for a new director for the magician sequel, and G.I. Joe: Retaliation helmer Jon M. Chu is reportedly at the top of their list.  More after the jump. Per The Wrap, Jon M. Chu »

If you were a child of the '80s, this news is for you! The "Jem and the Holograms" movie has been cast! According to The Hollywood Reporter, Aubrey Peeples ("Nashville") will play Jem while Stefanie Scott ("A.N.T. Farm") will star as Jem's sister, Kimber. Aurora Perrineau of "Pretty Little Liars" will jam as Shana and Hayley Kiyoko of "The Fosters" will play Aja.

Jon M. Chu ("Step Up 2," "Step Up 3D," "G.I. Joe: Retaliation," the two Justin Bieber documentaries) will direct the film which is based on a popular cartoon (with an equally popular theme song, see below) and toy collection.

Blumhouse Productions and Scooter Braun Productions are teaming up for this project which is supposed to be an updated look at the show complete with social media shenanigans.

Peeples went on her own social medium via Instagram and posted the "Jem" cast picture below where she wrote »

Today’s feature includes a clip from Alice D, a call for submissions from the London Horror Festival, trailers for Fractured, Too Young to Die, and Ghostline, first details for Imaginapped and Grimmerson Manor, and a Q&A with Jacqui Holland:

First Clip from Alice D: “In the late 1890s the Davenport House was a famous and successful brothel, until a young prostitute named Alice killed herself there. After her death, the brothel became haunted by Alice’s ghost, and was eventually abandoned.

More than a century later, the old structure is renovated into a beautiful mansion. It is still rumored to inhabit the ghost of Alice. Despite this, the new owner; the rich and arrogant heir to the Davenport fortune, decides to throw a wild party for his first night in the house. »

It's Truly Outrageous That 'Jem' Creator Christy Marx Isn't Involved in the Movie

21 March 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Yesterday's announcement about a "Jem and the Holograms" movie is giving us a lot of feelings, not all of them good. Yesterday, in a cute viral video, "G.I. Joe" director Jon M. Chu, horror movie producer Jason Blum (of Blumhouse Productions), and Bieber believer Scooter Braun took to YouTube to announce their new project and call for video auditions.

Chu described it as "a modern-day, live action, reinvention of the 1980's Hasbro classic cartoon," with Blum helpfully adding, "If you have a cool mom, she'll definitely know what it is!"

Braun discovered Justin Bieber on YouTube, inadvertently creating the TMZ monster running amok today; incidentally, that's also how they're looking for "Jem" cast members. You do the math. Blumhouse has been behind some good quick-and-cheap horror franchises, like "Paranormal Activity," "Insidious," "Sinister," and "The Purge," and some really bad ones, like, well, the endless parade of "Paranormal Activity" sequels.

Ok, »

Jon M. Chu & Jason Blum Making Live Action 'Jem And The Holograms' Movie, Open Up Casting To Everyone

20 March 2014 9:54 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It seems director Jon M. Chu has two operating modes: dance/music ("Step Up 2: The Streets," "Step Up 3D," "Justin Bieber: Never Say Never," "Justin Bieber: Believe") or action ("G.I. Joe: Retaliation"). And after making thing explodes for Hasbro, he's turning his attention to another one of their properties and bringing it to the big screen. Today, the director announced he's teaming up with Jason Blum ("Paranormal Activity") to bring a live action, modern take of "Jem And The Holograms" to the big screen. Yes, the very shortlived '80s cartoon is now being geared up to sell more toys and ride the nostalgia train. But perhaps more curious is that the team behind the film have hit social media already and are encouraging fans to share with them their passion for the movie, as well opening up casting to anybody and everyone. If you can sing, dance and act, »
