Because We Need More Dance, Mandate Presents 'Dream On'

June 2, 2010

Thomas Carter

Obviously because films like Center Stage, Honey and the upcoming 3-D sequel from the Step Up franchise just aren't enough to quench our thirst for dance movies, Mandate Pictures has announced that Thomas Carter (of Save the Last Dance; seen above) will direct Dream On, which is described as "a high-octane teen dance movie." That's good because if there was a small amount of octane, I'd go shoot myself instead (though I might end up doing that anyway). Producer Laurence Mark (Dreamgirls, Center Stage) is behind the project along with filmmaker Thomas Carter (also of Coach Carter). Read the awesome storyline below.

The film follows Nicole Phillips (uncast as far as we know) whose entire 17 years has been leading up to the chance to become an Olympic gymnast. When an injury threatens her gold-medal dreams, she discovers the electricity, beat, and passion of the underground hip-hop scene in downtown Atlanta. The hip-hop scene in Atlanta sounds a lot more dangerous than trying to be an Olympic gymnast with an injury, but whatever. If you're in need of a bumpin' soundtrack and some smooth dance moves, then it sounds like this movie is for you you should go to a club and stop supporting these kinds of movies. We'll try not to keep you updated.

    Lawl. What's the beef with dance movies? You're acting as if there's more of this genre than action, adventure, thriller, etc etc.
