R&B singer John Legend is joining forces with Step Up All In writer John Swetnam for a found footage dance movie entitled Breaking Through.

John Swetnam is writing the script and he will make his directorial debut with this project, described as a, "documentary-style dance drama for the YouTube generation." Casting is scheduled to start in the near future, with the filmmaker trying to discover new talent like the Step Up franchise has done in the past.

John Legend's Get Lifted Films is backing the film, with his Get Lifted partner Mike Jackson producing alongside BB Films' Uri Singer, FJ Productions' Fabio Golombek and Perimeter Group's Luis Fragali. John Legend is serving as executive producer alongside Ty Stiklorious. Production is scheduled to begin sometime this summer.

John Swetnam's other writing credits include Evidence and the upcoming Into the Storm.
