Step Up Scribe To “Jump Around”

Duane Adler (“Step Up,” “Save the Last Dance”) will direct and rework the screenplay for teen dance drama “Jump Around” at Wind Dancer Productions says The Hollywood Reporter.

Firdosi Wharton’s script follows a group of teenagers who form a double-dutch jump-roping team at their high school and compete for a spot in an international competition.

Matt Williams (“What Women Want”) and Judd Payne (“Passengers”) will produce. Adler’s script “Venice Beach” is in development at Fox with Ne-Yo attached to star.
