This summer, the new installment of the “Step Up” franchise will be getting the 3-D treatment. In “Step Up 3-D,” the dance moves will literally be in your face.
Director Jon Chu, who also helmed 2008’s “Step Up 2: The Streets,” said that this flick is really going to capture the audience’s attention. “It’s not the blue and red anymore. It’s a different 3-D, totally new style,” he said about the new glasses. “You gotta get the new ones. They look like shades.”
Even cooler than the glasses, however, will be watching the cast through them as they bust moves on the big screen. “Dance in 3-D is unlike anything you’ve seen before,” he said. “I thought it was kind of gimmicky at first, so then the more we rehearsed and the more we saw how much 3-D and dance go together … it’s like a whole new world. It is nuts. Things are flying in the air, especially with b-boys and poppers. This thing is like sitting in your lap when they dance.”
One of the film’s stars, Stephen “Twitch” Boss of “So You Think You Can Dance” fame, will be using his dance talents in the movie alongside up-and-comers Adam G. Sevani, Harry Shum Jr. and Ally Maki. “There’s going to be great dancing,” Boss said. “Amazing, amazing dancing … dope battles, and the 3-D effects — I have to tell you, I’ve seen a little bit of it and you’re gonna be blown away.”
