Jon Chu plans a new dance flick; Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark gets a screenwriter; Melissa McCarthy to headline Tinkerbell; the Steve Jobs biopic moves to Universal; Steve McQueen has two projects in development; and Mel Gibson selects his next directing/acting gig.
Director Jon Chu has sold a new project called Can’t Touch This that is said to be a teenage dance comedy set during the ’90s.
Although Chu has become a hot commodity thanks to his work on G.I. Joe Retaliation, he made a name for himself helming tons of music videos as well as Step Up 2 and Step Up 3. That’s all to say that Chu knows his way around tightly choreographed dance productions, and fans should look forward to this one.
But, Chu is only slated to produce Can’t Touch This and it is unlikely that he will be available to direct any time soon. The director just finished work on Jem and the Holograms and next will helm Now You See Me 2.
