Remember when the Dance Dance Revolution film was announced back in October? Did you think it couldn’t get any weirder? Apparently it can, as plans are now in place for a Just Dance movie adaptation. I guess Hollywood’s superhero well is finally starting to dry up.
According to an article by Deadline Hollywood, the company that successfully acquired the rights after a “competitive bidding” process is Screen Gems, a subdivision of Sony. The film itself is being produced by Ubisoft Film and Television along with Olive Bridge Entertainment – the former of which produced the 2016 Assassin’s Creed film. Here’s the Rotten Tomatoes page for that one. Make of that what you will.
There appear to be two main reasons driving this decision. Firstly, Just Dance is a ridiculously successful music game franchise – the most successful of all time, according to Ubisoft.
