It has been 20 years since Konami released the original Dance Dance Revolution, the rhythm / dance game that went on to become an arcade phenomenon around the world. But after all this time, despite its popularity, DDR has never really branched out into other media. So obviously it’s high time someone gave fans the DDR movie they’ve all been waiting for. Former Warner Bros president Greg Silverman is stepping in to do exactly that with his new production company Stampede Ventures. Hit the jump for more details.
According to Variety, Greg Silverman’s Stampede Ventures is developing a Dance Dance Revolution movie. The story will supposedly “explore a world on the brink of destruction where the only hope is to unite through the universal language of dance.” That’s funny, it sure sounds a lot like Brandon and Jason Trost’s 2011 film The FP (and the upcoming sequel, FP2: Beats of Rage).
Not much else is known about the project as of yet but J. Todd Harris and Marc Marcum of Branded Entertainment are also on board as producers and Cara Fano will supervise. Konami is said to be involved although it is unclear how much creative input they might have. It seems safe to assume that this will also be a musical on some level, although let’s face it… it’s pretty hard to imagine this thing actually getting made. Do you think they might actually pull off a decent Dance Dance Revolution movie?
