Step Up Screenwriter Duane Adler Makes Directorial Debut With Make Your Move

Dance-Driven Tale of Star-Crossed Lovers Features DWTS' Derek Hough, Multiplatinum-Selling K-Pop Star BoA (March 04, 2014)

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/04/14 -- Duane Adler, best known for his dance-centric, youth-driven screenplays for Save The Last Dance and the Step Up films, two of the highest-grossing, teen-romance films in the past four decades, makes his directorial debut with MAKE YOUR MOVE in theaters nationwide April 18, released by Film District. The film was produced by CJ Entertainment, SM Entertainment and Robert Cort Productions.

Step Up Screenwriter Duane Adler Makes Directorial Debut With Make Your Move

Both Save The Last Dance and Step Up are in the top 10 of all-time box office for dance films with worldwide grosses of nearly $250 million each. The Step Up franchise has grossed over $550 million in theatrical box office worldwide, while Step Up 5 will be released in summer 2014.

Adler is a key contributor to the reemergence of the enormous appeal of music and dance in American popular culture. Adler's original screenplays for Save The Last Dance and Step Up both pre-figure the Dancing With The Stars craze and arguably established the careers of then-newcomers Julia Stiles, Kerry Washington and Channing Tatum.

MAKE YOUR MOVE, a Romeo & Juliet-esque tale of Donny, an American dancer from New Orleans who's a some-time bad boy, and Aya, a spunky, sultry Asian taiko drummer, stars Dancing With The Stars' Derek Hough and multiplatinum-selling K-Pop star BoA.


Set in Brooklyn in the underground dance club scene, MAKE YOUR MOVE not only features some supercharged, mesmerizing dance-off and drumming set pieces, it also engages the audience with its diverse, multicultural cast. Both Save The Last Dance and the Step Up films have diverse casts and transcend culture, race and economic class, common threads in all Adler's work.

"Our story is set in Brooklyn, one of the most ethnically diverse cities and neighborhoods in the world. I wanted the film to reflect that. The diversity of our cast feels very 'today', especially as our world has shrunk on a global scale; young people are exposed to so much cultural range, in the classroom, in their daily lives and via the internet," comments Adler.
