    Just Dance is becoming a movie. You heard that right: the Ubisoft dancing game first released in 2009 will be getting a movie adaptation from Screen Gems. Maybe this will be the one to break the video game adaptation curse.

    Deadline reports that Screen Gems has acquired the motion-picture rights to Just Dance following a competitive bidding situation with multiple studios. The studio is set to develop a movie adaptation of the bestselling video game that got 120 million video game players off their couches to work up a sweat worldwide.

    Though Just Dance seems like a video game from a bygone era of rhythm games (Dance Dance Revolution, you’re still missed), the wildly popular Ubisoft game is celebrating its 10-year anniversary this year and still going strong. A 2019 edition was recently released with hit tracks from Western and K-pop artists alike, including Bruno Mars, BIGBANG, BLACKPINK, Sean Paul, Drake, J Balvin, Camila Cabello, Daddy Yankee.
