Blumhouse Boards Swing Dance Documentary ‘Alive and Kicking’ (EXCLUSIVE)

Blumhouse has found its next documentary project, an insider’s view of the swing dance world from director Susan Glatzer, Variety has learned.

Entitled “Alive and Kicking,” the project follows a group of people who get inspired to shake up their own lives after getting involved in dancing. Blumhouse will produce and co-finance “Alive and Kicking” and will work with Glatzer to find distribution.

Although best known for its work on genre films such “The Purge” and “Paranormal Activity,” Blumhouse has made a concerted push into non-fiction filming, producing HBO’s “The Jinx” and “How to Dance in Ohio.”

Before she started directing, Glatzer was a film executive at major studios and independent film companies, working in productions and acquisitions at companies like Paramount Pictures and October Films. She was involved with such films as “Narc,” “Breaking the Waves,” “High Art,” and “Secrets & Lies.”
