Stampede and Konami Working on Dance Dance Revolution Movie

Hollywood is talking about making movies based on games again. This one may an even sillier idea than the Tetris movie. It turns out Stampede and Konami are working on a Dance Dance Revolution movie.

We only know a few details about the Dance Dance Revolution movie so far. It will feature a setting where dancing will be powerful enough to save the world. Literally, the world is about to end and the heroes are going to use “the universal language of dance” to save the day. That’s something.

A few of the people behind the Dance Dance Revolution movie have been revealed. Stampede’s Cara Fano, Director of Development, Film & TV is supervising. Konami is also involved, as are Branded Pictures Entertainment’s J. Todd Harris and Marc Marcum.

The Dance Dance Revolution series began in Japanese arcades in 1998. Since then, installments have appeared on the PlayStation, PlayStation 2, Dreamcast, Game Boy Color, Nintendo 64, Game Cube, Wii, PC, Xbox, Xbox 360, and mobile devices. The last PlayStation 3 installment was Dance Dance Revolution in 2010, which featured PlayStation Move support and DLC.

Game movies are getting to be quite a big deal now. We know a Sonic the Hedgehog movie is coming in 2019. There have been rumblings about a Metal Gear Solid movie too. It feels like the Uncharted movie has been in the works forever. And of course, we can’t forget the Tomb Raider movie released in March 2018.

How do you feel about this Dance Dance Revolution movie news? Do you think you would watch it? Could it end up being the next Footloose or Step Up?
