R&B singer John Legend is teaming with "Step Up: All In" and "Into The Storm" scribe John Swetnam for the indie coming-of-age dance drama "Breaking Through".
The project is being described as the first film to combine two different genres - dance movies and found footage. Casting begins shortly ahead of a summer shoot.
Swetnam will make his feature directorial debut on the film and the aim is to deliver a "documentary-style dance drama for the YouTube generation".
Swetnam, Mike Jackson, Uri Singer, Luis Fragali and Fabio Golombek will produce.
