The story, which came to Lemme when he realized that several A-list actors were breakdancers prior to rising to stardom in Hollywood, pays homage to the 90’s hip-hop scene and centers around two rival breakdancing crews preparing for a dance-off in their hometown 20 years after their original battle.
John Cheng will produce with Ratner for RatPac and Jake Stein will produce with Simmons for Def Pictures. Ben Feign is the executive producer. Erik Feig and Geoff Shaevitz will oversee for the studio.
As a member of Broken Lizard, Lemme has appeared in and co-written Super Troopers, Beerfest, and The Slammin’ Salmon. He is currently in production with Super Troopers 2 – the budget for which was raised through a massively successful Kickstarter campaign last year.
Lemme is repped by CAA.
