Time to play catchup with a couple of release dates that surfaced over the weekend. First up, Summit will release Step Up 4 on August 10, 2012, possibly under the title Step Up 4Ever 3D—if we’re lucky. The release date comes with a new synopsis. In between the dancing: “Emily, the daughter of a wealthy businessman, arrives in Miami with aspirations of becoming a professional dancer, but soon falls in love with Sean, a young man who leads a dance crew in elaborate, cutting-edge flash mobs.” Kathryn McCormick, Ryan Guzman, and Stephen Boss star.
Next, Box Office Mojo lists October 19, 2012 for the release of the feature directorial debut of The Sopranos creator David Chase. The story revolves around a group of friends who form a band in the 1960s—the film was using the band name, Twylight Zones, as the working title. It was never meant to last though, since that reads more sci-fi than period rock drama. For the time being, the movie is untitled. Given the pre-Halloween date, I do hold out some hope “Twylight Zones” will play an important role in the marketing. John Magaro, Jack Huston, Will Brill, and James Gandolfini star; Steven Van Zandt served as music supervisor.
Hit the jump for the full Step Up 4 synopsis.
Synopsis via Coming Soon:
STEP UP 4 is the next installment in the worldwide smash Step Up franchise, which sets the dancing against the vibrant backdrop of Miami. Emily, the daughter of a wealthy businessman, arrives in Miami with aspirations of becoming a professional dancer, but soon falls in love with Sean, a young man who leads a dance crew in elaborate, cutting-edge flash mobs. The crew, called the MOB, strives to win a contest for a major sponsorship opportunity, but soon Emily’s father threatens to develop the MOB’s historic neighborhood and displace thousands of people. Emily must band together with Sean and the MOB to turn their performance mobs into protest mobs, and risk losing their dreams to fight for a greater cause.
