Exclusive : Who’s Who and What’s What in Step Up 4

Alicia Malone is a Film Reporter, TV Host, Producer, Writer, Editor, and all around movie geek. She developed her taste for film at a young age, spending many a heady Friday night pajama-clad at the video store, picking out her 7 films for 7 days for $7. Bargain! While at school she created a Film Club, electing herself President. Eventually the School Principal asked her not to get up in assembly to talk about movies anymore.

Yep, you heard me – “Step Up 4″.

Ashley Tisdale’s beau Scott Speer is directing this third sequel to the Mr & Mrs Tatum hit. John Chu is executive producing, Adam Shankman producing and Channing Tatum… er, he’s not in it.

There’s a shift in locale this time. We’re in Miami now, where Sean, a poor guy from ‘the streets’, runs an underground dance troupe. When he’s not working for a real-estate company he’s putting on the Ritz.

Emily is home for the Summer. Rich and sassy, she’s a classical, lyrical dancer – and, of course, Sean’s boss’s daughter. Though she’s just graduated NYU, she wants to dance full-time (in the Fusion Dance Company, ideally) – – something her uber-successful pop isn’t so sure about. She hooks up with Dad’s employee Sean who introduces her to his flash mob organization where she can be as free and creative in her dance as she likes.

Emily and Sean, of course, develop feelings for each other. This does not please Trip, a young man being groomed by Emily’s father to not only take over the family business but take his daughter off his hands one day.

The other main characters are Eddy, Sean’s best friend, he’s the genius behind the underground dance troupe; aggressive, fueled by attitude and against anyone with money… well, you can guess who won’t get along with Sean’s new pal; Claire, Sean’s down-on-her-luck sister who wants her brother to get a real life and a real career and put this dance dream to bed; Ricky, the owner of Sean’s favourite bar and somewhat of a father figure to the troubled youngster, and Penelope, a tom-boy type with attitude who spins the tunes for the underground club.

I’d put money on Ashley Tisdale getting a look-in as Emily.

So, there you have it, basically the same deal as the other “Step Up” movies but will likely still dance all over the imitators.

Filming begins on “Step Up 4″ in August.
