‘Step Up 5’ to Pit Channing Tatum Against Franchise Stars in Epic Dance Battle

Step Up 5 may unite Channing Tatum with the rest of the franchise's stars A few years ago, Fast Five revitalized the franchise by bringing in stars from the first four movies in one big adventure. If all goes according to plan, Summit Entertainment will take a page out of that same playbook with Step Up 5. The studio is moving forward on the sequel, with plans to bring the stars of the first four movies back, all under the same cinematic roof, including Channing Tatum.

Step Up: Revolution director Scott Speer will direct from a screenplay by John Swetnam. The story will culminate with an epic dance-off that will, if all goes to plan, feature cameos by the stars of each movie in the franchise.

Although no deals have been signed yet, it is possible Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan-Tatum will return. Both of their careers were launched with the first Step Up in 2006, with Channing Tatum also making a cameo appearance in Step Up 2 the Streets. If they can get everyone back, expect to see Briana Evigan (Step Up 2 the Streets), Sharni Vinson (Step Up 3D), and Ryan Guzman (Step Up: Revolution), just to name a few.

Jennifer Gibgot and Adam Shankman will produce. No shooting schedule has been given at this time.

    Ever since after Step Up 2, i have always wanted Channing Tatum to return to the Step Up Franchise, he made it, he was dubbed Royalty in the Second film, i would love to see Tyler Gage grace the Step Up franchise once again!

                  @Roberto-Mata Seriously man. They have made a lot of money and are pretty good if you like dance movies.

                    @corey Yeah, I'll give them that. They do the main part right, even on the verge of extraordinarily well. But I can't force myself to watch the rest just to see the dance scenes.

                      @ROFLitschristian They are pretty bleh movies but I'll admit the dancing sequences in them can be pretty cool-looking.

                            This is ridiculous. The Step Up movies will never improve, it's always the same mediocre story and characters. The only thing good about the movies are the music and the dances, but that can't save it from characters that range from lame to beyond retarded and stories that are so bad it's hilarious. A DDR movie would have more dignity than this.

                                  @Roberto-Mata I think if the paycheck is right he will do it and I am sure if he is in it, it will draw large audiences of women and do well at the box office no matter how crap it is. Money is all the studio sees.

                                    @ejk1@skywise I think that the studio had seen the success of team ups in movies (The Avengers, Fast Five, The Expendables) and they think they could pull off something like that with this franchise, but what I see is another garbage film, without a plot, acting or directing, yes they are kind of successfull at the box office, but they are still garbage, they aim for a teen audience, Step Up was a one shot film made into a franchise, this is pure human stupidity, If Tatum takes the role, he may put his career on the line..

                                      @ejk1 Also in those movies the stars from pervious films had somwhat important role to play in the overall story. Comparing this to that is rediculous, it would be like all the stars of F&F showing up as cameos in the final car chase. Garbage!

                                        @Roberto-Mata Also, Fast Five brought Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Jordanna Brewster, Ludacris, Tyrese Gibson, while adding the Rock. Not the best actors, but recognizable names. I have no idea who was in any of the Step Up sequels. Does anyone? Without looking at the Wikipedia page?
