Hollywood will try to turn anything that is popular into a movie, and the latest evidence of this is today’s announcement that a film based on Dance Dance Revolution is in development.
According to its official description, the DDR movie has incredibly high takes. “The project will explore a world on the brink of destruction where the only hope is to unite through the universal language of dance,” according to Variety.
Konami, which owns the DDR IP, is working with film company Stampede on the film.
DDR, which utilises a physical dance pad, launched in Japanese arcades in the late ’90s before coming to North America in the early 2000s. The game was a massive success, and Konami would go on to partner with companies like Nintendo on versions of the game, including DDR: Mario Mix.
There are no further details at this stage about the DDR movie, so we don’t know when it’ll enter production or any of the talent behind it. It seems like very early days for the project.
