Currently in production, director Rob Hardy of Rainforest Films, with films such as The Gospel (2005), Pandora's Box (2002), Trois (2000), and Chocolate City (1994) under his repertoire, can add Stomp the Yard 2: Homecoming to his belt. Columbus Short, who starred in the original film, is rumored to make a cameo appearance. The new production brings in a new cast as well as crew to the project, although the plot-line is similar to the original, in that it involves the NPHC organization sat Truth University competing in a step competition. Stomp the Yard 2:Homecoming is directed by Sylvain White.
This movie is going to hit theaters with a major fan base, everyone ranging from Pooch Hall to Terrence J is starring in this film. So if you watched The Game on the CW or 106 & Park, you are in for a treat!
I went to the movies to see this film, and I'm a little disappointed that Columbus Short isn't starring in it again but hey, someone else deserves some shine too, right?
Stomp the Yard (Sony/Screen Gems) has grossed over $75 million worldwide, making a profit of over $61 million over its $14 million production budget.
Stomp the Yard 2 began filming in Atlanta in late 2009 and is slated for a Summer 2010 release.
***UPDATE*** STOMP THE YARD 2 WILL BE RELEASED ON DVD NEXT MONTH (SEPT.) I WILL HAVE OFFICIAL DATE SOON!
