Izabella Miko has joined the cast of STEP UP 5. She’s the only newcomer that so far has Briana Evigan, Ryan Guzman, Alyson Stoner, Misha Gabriel, Mari Koda, Chris Scott, Luis Rosado, Chadd Smith and Adam Sevani all reprising their roles from previous entries.
The plot is being kept under wraps but you don’t come to a movie like this for Machiavellian plotting or Greek tragedy. Well, you do if you’re weird, I guess. Anyway, I’m hoping for a “Kickboxer” (or “Mortal Kombat” if you’re younger) style tournament of windmill kicks and leg sweeps. Only to the death. Hell maybe they go “Battle Royale” style and drop all these great dancers onto an island where dancing is the key to survival. Fingers crossed!
John Swetnam wrote the script that former choreographer Trish Sie will direct. Producing will be Jennifer Gibgot, Adam Shankman, Erik Feig and Patrick Wachsberger.
Miko was last seen in “Make Your Move” and “Two Jacks.”
She is repped by Emptage Hallett.
