Bear in mind when the Dance Dance Revolution film was announced back in October? Did you suppose it could not get any weirder? Apparently it might probably, as plans are actually in place for a Simply Dance film adaptation. I assume Hollywood’s superhero properly is lastly beginning to dry up.
In line with an article by Deadline Hollywood, the corporate that efficiently acquired the rights after a “aggressive bidding” course of is Display Gems, a subdivision of Sony. The movie itself is being produced by Ubisoft Movie and Tv together with Olive Bridge Leisure – the previous of which produced the 2016 Murderer’s Creed movie. Here’s the Rotten Tomatoes page for that one. Make of that what you’ll.
There seem like two major causes driving this determination. Firstly, Simply Dance is a ridiculously profitable music sport franchise – essentially the most profitable of all time, based on Ubisoft.
The second cause is that, as Deadline Hollywood highlights, Sony is at the moment seeking to spend money on properties that carry out properly throughout a number of platforms: be it video video games, movie or music. Simply Dance technically hits all three of those, as most of the artists featured within the sport (resembling Shakira, Pharrell Williams and Camila Cabello) are additionally signed by Sony. Welcome to world leisure conglomerates 2019.
Personally, I am not totally positive how they’ll make this movie resemble something near the sport, and I believe it could find yourself as one other common dance movie la Step Up. Extra importantly, I am undecided it might probably high the bold deliberate storyline for the DDR movie, which is able to “discover a world getting ready to destruction the place the one hope is to unite by the common language of dance”. However then, can something?
