Music Video Director Scott Speer to Helm Another 'Step Up' Sequel
If you've been missing sweet dance moves on the big screen complete with a weak story to tie what is essentially a batch of music videos together, then I have some good news for you. Deadline reports Summit Entertainment has hired Scott Speer, a music video and commercial director, to helm Step Up 4Ever, the fourth installment in the dance series. Originally choreographer Wade Robson was going to direct the feature, but personal reasons kept him from meeting the summer start date. The script (as if it matters) comes from new writer Jenny Mayer, but it's not clear what cheesy romance or struggles will lie between the plentiful dance sequences.
And since the third installment Step Up 3D worked out so well in the third dimension, this new film will also be shot in 3D. I suppose if you take these films for the extended music videos they really are, or just plain enjoy killer dancing, then these can be quite enjoyable. And with a director like Speer, who has worked on music videos for artists such as Jordin Sparks, Will.I.Am and Jason Derulo, you can bet he'll deliver what true fans of the franchise really want. Honestly, since you can't get music videos on MTV anymore, why not find them in movie theaters like this? Anyone actually interested?

I'm happy there is going to be another movie, but the writer needs to cool off about the plot. The first one had a good story line. Yes the other two were weak in the story line but the point of the movies were the dance. You can state it once that there isn't much plot to the movies, but no need to repeat yourself. You are just upsetting fans of the movies.

I agree. First one obviously really started the series off on the right foot but the other two were superior in choreography but as for story... eh... Definitely going to see this when it comes out though. I was more impressed with the 3-D in the third movie than I was with the majority of any of the other other 3-D movies

Yeah. Great movies. Definitely deserve at least 5 more sequels/spin-offs and a reboot. I hate Hollywood more every day, and this is why.
