here’s much to make a song and dance about, with Step Up: The Streets and Step Up: All In lead actor Briana Evigan starring alongside writer and director Tom Malloy (Trauma Therapy, Shattered), Mario Canton (Sex and the City, Hindsight) and Joyce DeWitt (The Savant, Cybill).
Jack is an IT programmer, a great guy, and unlucky in love. Jill is a graphic designer, a great gal, and just as unlucky. They have no idea they are destined to be together. On a starry night, Jack and Jill separately meet a fortune teller who tells them they will meet the love of their life before midnight at the end of the year, which happens to be only five days away. The countdown begins, and both Jack and Jill go on a series of horrible and hilarious dates, each worse than the next. Each time, they barely miss meeting each other. New Year’s Eve is getting closer. Will the fortune-teller’s prophecy come true? Will they meet and fall in love?
| Speaking about the film, director, writer and star, Tom Malloy said: “The dancing in this movie is like the glue that holds the main characters together, and it’s what’s missing from their lives.” He continued: “I was extremely lucky to convince Briana Evigan, the star of the Step Up movies opposite Channing Tatum, to be the Jill to my Jack. Our names in the film are not just a play on the old poem. “Jack and Jill” dances are a type of dance native to West Coast Swing… it’s a dance where you don’t know who will be your partner, and you don’t know what the music will be. You have to improvise a dance on the spot. And we were also lucky to get the 8 Time U.S. Open Swing Dance Champion Robert Royston to choreograph the movie. He was also one of my first teachers so many years ago!“
Finally, he added: “The goal of this movie is to make people laugh out loud, escape life for a bit, and see some great dancing. Who wouldn’t want that?” Ask Me to Dance will be available on Digital Download from 13th February
