Britain’s Got Talent winners Diversity are set to appear alongside rival dance troupe Flawless in the first British film to be shot in 3D. Shooting on StreetDance is due to begin in August.
Vertigo Films signed both dance acts after seeing them perform at the UK Street Dance Championships last July. Flawless also took part in Saturday’s Britain’s Got Talent final.
James Richardson, producer and co-founder of Vertigo, has also signed up breakdancer George Sampson, who won the talent contest last year.
Richardson said: “When I saw Flawless and Diversity last summer I immediately started talking to them about being in the film as I felt they represented the very best of British streetdance.”
Casting for the film is still in progress and auditions for dancers are currently being held across the country.
StreetDance will follow the a dance troupe training for the Street Dance Championships, who are forced to work with ballet dancers from the Royal Dance School in return for rehearsal space. The dancers have to find a way to join forces to win.
It will be directed by Max and Darnia, best known for promos and videos, with a screenplay by Jane English. It will be distributed by Vertigo.
The film will be show using 3D technology, which Vertigo claims will make it the first British move to be shot in 3D.
