In a story from The Hollywood Reporter, Writer-director Rob Hardy has recently inked a deal to direct the sequel Stomp the Yard 2: Homecoming for Rainforest Films.

Columbus Short, who was the star of the original film for Sony Screen Gems, is presently in talks to return as DJ, "a master street dancer." The casting of other actors is also afoot, and the sequel will begin shooting next month in Atlanta.

The first Stomp the Yard came out in 2007 and grossed $74 million worldwide.
