Trans-Tasman pop star Stan Walker has another shot at becoming a movie star.

The singer, who appeared in the local hit in 2013 Mount Sion, was sunk in Born to dance which is described as a “multi-million dollar international hip-hop film” which begins filming in New Zealand in October.

“I’m very happy to be a part of the very first major dance film to come out of New Zealand,” Walker said. “New Zealand is one of the greatest nations in hip-hop dance and it will be great to bring our history and our dancers to an international audience.”

The film will be directed by Tammy Davis, who is best remembered as her Scandalous fortune Munta character.

This will be Davis’ first feature film after his award-winning shorts Ebony companyy and Son, my older brother.

The film will be choreographed by Parris Gobel whose hip-hop work took her from South Auckland to the international stage.

The film is a coming-of-age story told through the eyes of Tu, an ambitious young man from Auckland who dreams of being a professional hip-hop dancer.

Walker will play Benjy, one of Tu’s friends from Papakura.

The filmmakers say the casting is still ongoing and “an international Hollywood starlet is expected to star in the female lead.”

The call was made for local dancers to win a lead role in the film via radio stations Flava and ZM.

Information is available through the ZM and Flava websites.
