Damien alumna Megalyn Echikunwoke is set to star in the film formerly known as Ain’t No Half Steppin’. Broad Green Pictures said today that its sorority comedy from Drumline helmer Charles Stone has been retitled Step Sisters and also will feature Eden Sher, Lyndon Smith, Gage Golightly, Nia Jervier, Alessandra Torresani, Marque Richardson, Naturi Naughton and Matt McGorry.
The film centers on Jamilah (Echikunwoke), an ambitious black sorority girl who, in order to get admitted to the law school of her dreams, agrees to cross culture lines and teach the exclusive art of black Greek stepping to a band of wild, Kardashian-obsessed white sorority girls whose charter is about to be revoked.
Chuck Hayward wrote the feature, which is produced by Matt Alvarez, Lena Waithe and Benjamin Cory Jones. Broad Green’s Josh Reinhold is an executive producer.
