Summit Entertainment has hired music video director Scott Speer to helm the next installment of their dance franchise, Step Up 4. Wade Robson was previously set to direct, although he dropped out for personal reasons.
Scott Speer previously directed episodes of the web series The LXD: The League of Extraordinary Dancers, which is created by Step Up 3D director Jon M. Chu.
Jenny Mayer is writing the screenplay for Step Up 4, although no plot details have been revealed at this time. However, like Step Up 3D, Step Up 4 will be shot in 3D.
Jon M. Chu will serve as executive producer on Step Up 4, with Adam Shankman and Jennifer Gibgot producing. A summer start date is currently being planned for Step Up 4.
