Choreographer turned filmmaker Kevin Tancharoen (â€œFameâ€) tells Moviehole heâ€™s dancing into a science-fiction flick next.
â€œArcanaâ€, says Tancharoean, â€œis a unique blend of the graphic-novel backdrop â€“ like Blade Runner â€“ and shot like 300, and has a little bit of Warriors mixed in there, with a little bit of martial arts, so itâ€™s got a lot of crazy elements in there. Itâ€™s going to be really cool. Weâ€™re writing it right now actually â€“ a guy named John Ridley is writing it; Iâ€™m very happy we got him.â€
Ridley recently wrote the script for â€œRed Tailsâ€, the George Lucas-produced adventure pic about the Tuskegee Airmen, the first African-American pilots to fly in a combat squadron during World War II.
The filmmaker says you shouldnâ€™t be surprised that he, the dancing man, is next headed into â€œBlade Runnerâ€ territory.
â€œIâ€™m first a comic and video-game nerd â€¦. Who got into dancing somehowâ€, he laughs.
â€œArcanaâ€ is set up at Rat Entertainment and will be produced by Brett Ratner (â€œX-Men : The Last Standâ€) and Jay Stern (â€œRush Hour 3â€). Universal will distribute.
