Five actors are getting ready to bust their moves.
Josh Holloway, Laz Alonso, Josh Peck, Chris Brown and Caity Lotz have all signed on to the breakdancing drama, "Planet B Boy," according to The Hollywood Reporter.
"Planet B Boy" is based on the 2007 documentary, "Planet B-Boy" (notice that the feature version doesn't have a dash in its title -- that's how you can tell them apart), which focused on the international sensation known as "b-boying" -- or, as it's more commonly referred to here in the States, "breakdancing."
"Planet B Boy" is about an all-star American b-boy crew training to compete in France at the Battle of the Year (BOTY) International Championships. After a decade of defeat, the crew and their coach must go up against the best and greatest b-boys in the world: the Koreans, the Russians and the French, who have dominated the original American dance form for the last ten years.
Will these Americans show the champs that they can b-boy with the best of them? We have a feeling it might turn out that way -- and maybe everyone will learn a little something from each other in the process.
"Lost" star Josh Holloway will next be seen in "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol," opening Dec. 21. Laz Alonso appeared as Tsu'tey in James Cameron's "Avatar" and recently starred in "Straw Dogs." Josh Peck, who voices Eddie in the "Ice Age" movies, will next appear in the "Red Dawn" remake.
Meanwhile, singer Chris Brown recently appeared in "Takers" and "Mad Men" guest star Caity Lotz currently stars in MTV's supernatural mockumentary series, "Death Valley."
"Planet B Boy" began production this week in Los Angeles under the direction of Benson Lee, who also directed the original documentary.
