According to The Hollywood Reporter, Duane Adler (writer of Step Up) has been drafted to rewrite the screenplay for Jump Around. Adler will also helm this picture for Wind Dancer Productions
The original script for Jump Around was written by Firdosi Wharton. It follows some teenagers that form a double-dutch jump-roping team at their high school. They eventually compete for a spot in an international competition. Double Dutch was just made an official varsity sport in New York City schools this year.
"We went to the Apollo Theater this year to see these kids in action, and the dance moves are truly ground-breaking," Williams stated.
