Paramount Scoops Up Fashion Flick From ‘Step Up 3D’ Writers

step up 3dNow that Ugly Betty is out of our lives, Paramount is seizing the opportunity to fill the poncho-rific four-eyed void with another movie about fashion. I guess it’s about time, it’s been a while since the last adorable-girl-living-in-a-cut-throat-fashion-world flick came out. Rather unoriginal, the film will follow a Cinderella-type character as she enters the fashion world. Yep, sounds like Ugly Betty with a touch of The Devil Wears Prada. Oh, and there will potentially be some dancing involved. That’s girl-bait if I ever saw it. The film is still in its infancy, but I’d advise boyfriends everywhere to start dreaming up fake illnesses now to get out of going to see this when it finally hits theaters.

Director/Producer/Choreographer extraordinaire, Adam Shankman, will re-team with his Hairspray producer to bring the film to fruition, so perhaps the stale story will at least get a bit of a fresh spin (or maybe even a twirl). The part of this whole untitled project’s puzzle that bothers me is the writing duo behind it all. Step Up 3D scribes Emily Meyer andAmy Andelson are the ones setting the dance steps in motion here, and if you ask me, the Step Up series isn’t exactly the pinnacle of great, or eventolerable, cinematic dialog.

Celebrity Editor Kelsea Stahler was born in a pile of dirt. Okay, she was actually born in an old Naval hospital in San Diego, which then became a pile of dirt and remained as such for a number of years before becoming a parking lot perfectly sized for circus tents, and finally a museum. She eventually left San Diego to attend New York University, where she studied Journalism and English literature — two less-than profitable liberal arts degrees about which guidance counselors warned her. Against all odds, she now resides in Brooklyn, where she fights the constant fear that the locals will soon discover she isn’t quite cool enough to live there, and makes a living writing absurd, pop culture features about Batman, zombies, vampires, funny people, and Ron Swanson.
