Adam Sevani, Misha Gabriel, Alyson Stoner, Stephen "tWitch" Boss and Mari Koda, all Step Up veterans, will also appear in the new film from Summit Entertainment.
The Hollywood Reporter notes that Stoner, who also appeared in Cheaper by the Dozen, starred in the first Step Up and Step Up 3. Sevani has appeared in three Step Up films: To The Streets, Step Up 3D and Revolution.
