In the early 2000s, a myriad of school-themed movies reigned in Hollywood: Step Up, Stomp The Yard and one of our all time favorites Drumline. Thanks to VH1, a new original movie will premiere introducing six new leading actors for the latter’s sequel. Drumline: A New Beat will star LeToya Luckett, Alexandra Shipp, Jordan Calloway, Jeff Pierre, Jasmine Burke and Scott Shilstone along with Leonard Roberts from the original movie.
VH1 will partner with Fox Television Studios to tell the story of Danielle Bolton, a Brooklyn native with dreams of becoming the first female section leader at Atlanta A&T. The movie is executive produced by Nick Cannon, who will also make a cameo appearance as Devon Miles. The VH1 exclusive is set to premiere in the fall.
