Step Up 2: The Streets director Jon M. Chu is going back 2: the '90s for another movie about dancing teenagers. According to Deadline, he's just sold Focus Features a pitch for Can't Touch This, described as "a high school dance comedy set in the golden era of the 1990s." Though it's worth noting that the Step Up series--of which Chu also directed Step Up 3D--has been rapidly declining in profits since the first sequel, evidently the hope is to find the dance genre a new life swathed in the levity of neon spandex and parachute pants. There are not yet further details, except that MC Hammer is fucking thrilled he might get a royalty check.
