'Drumline' director sets sorority comedy with '90210,' 'The Middle' stars
Charles Stone will release 'Step Sisters' in 2017
Megalyn Echikunwoke, Eden Sher, and Lyndon Smith have a new stomping ground. The three actresses are set to star in Step Sisters, Broad Green Pictures’ comedy about an ambitious black sorority girl who crosses cultural lines to teach the art of black Greek stepping to a house full of hard-partying white girls on the verge of losing their charter.
The cast also includes Gage Golightly, Nia Jervier, Alessandra Torresani, Marque Richardson, Naturi Naughton, and Matt McGorry.
Filmmaker Charles Stone, who previously explored black Greek life in Drumline, is directing Step Sisters, which was previously titled Ain’t No Half-Steppin’. Chuck Hayward wrote the script.
Echikunwoke, Sher, and Smith are primarily known for their work on the small screen. Among their credits, Echikunwoke appeared in Damien and 90210, Sher stars on The Middle, and Smith had a recurring role on Parenthood.
Step Sisters is scheduled to start shooting June 1 in Atlanta, with an eye toward a 2017 release.
