Berlin: Sales Launch for ‘Ain’t No Half Steppin’ From ‘Straight Outta Compton’ Producer

Mister Smith Entertainment will launch international sales on the Broad Green Pictures’ dance comedy “Ain’t No Half Steppin'” at the Berlin Film Festival.

Production will begin in the spring. Broad Green announced in November that it had launching development on the dance comedy with “Drumline” helmer Charles Stone directing.

Producers are “Straight Outta Compton” producer Matt Alvarez, “Master of None” star Lena Waithe and Benjamin Cory Jones.

Stone will direct “Ain’t No Half Steppin'” from a script by Chuck Hayward, who currently writes for Cooper Barrett’s “Guide to Surviving Life” on Fox. The story centers on an ambitious black sorority girl who, in order to get admitted to the law school of her dreams, agrees to cross culture lines and teach the exclusive art of black Greek stepping to a band of white sorority girls whose charter is about to be revoked.

Alvarez joined the studio’s development and production team in October in an exclusive production pact.

Aakomon Jones, whose credits include the “Pitch Perfect” franchise, “Get on Up” and “Dreamgirls,” will choreograph the film.

Broad Green Pictures will distribute the film theatrically in the U.S. Casting is currently under way.
