My friend Lynn sends me info about "Street Dance" a UK-produced movie which opened in May all over Europe, but doesn't appear to be schedule to appear on these shores anytime soon. Presumably they are still looking for a US distributor. Or test marketing to see how an English street dance film plays to an American audience.
Reading the IMDB description, this sounds suspiciously like the UK version of "Step Up." Except the ballerina role is played by a dude. I can hear the writer's pitch now:
"Here's an idea,we COMBINE street dance and ballet! That would be totally a FIRST in the entire dance world."
Oh, and did I mention that it's going to be in 3D? Yep, more b-boys… on yo face.
I will of course totally see this, and probably end up mostly liking it. Cause I'm a sucker for a classic dance battle flick.
