Summit sets fourth film in ‘Step Up’ franchise

Choreographer Wade Robson to direct Miami-set movie

Summit is dancing its way back to “Step Up,” tapping choreographer Wade Robson to direct the fourth, Miami-set installment in the film franchise.

Jennifer Gibgot and Adam Shankman will return to produce via their Offspring Entertainment banner, with plans to shoot next summer in 3D.

Jenny Mayer will pen the screenplay. Jon Chu, who helmed 2008’s “Step Up 2: The Streets” and this year’s “Step Up 3-D,” will exec produce.

The yet-to-titled film will be distributed in the U.S. either by Disney or Summit. As with the past three films, Summit will handle international distribution.

The “Step Up” pics, launched in 2006, have become the industry’s most successful dance franchise with worldwide grosses topping $420 million.

Robson won two Emmys for pieces he choreographed for Fox’s “So You Think You Can Dance.” He also choreographed for Cirque du Soleil and Criss Angel’s “Believe” at the Las Vegas Luxor.

“The ‘Step Up’ movies have been an important part of Summit’s history, and we are thrilled to take the franchise to the next level with a talent like Wade Robson’s — an amazing visualist who can tell a story through dance,” said Summit production prexy Erik Feig.

Feig and Meredith Milton will oversee the project for the studio.

Robson is represented by WME.
