We’ve already declared Step Up Revolution the guilty pleasure movie of the summer, and now we can show you one of the reasons behind our pick: The ultra-hot chemistry between the film’s stars, Ryan Guzman and Kathryn McCormick. According to the film’s director, Scott Speer, whom we spoke with last week at the film’s press junket in L.A.: “They fell for each other, which is always a huge help.” Added producer Adam Shankman, “Both are really talented and both are really, really nice, and I hadn’t seen that since we cast Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan [in the first Step Up film]. And we know what happened there — they’re married.”
When we asked if Ryan and Kathryn fell for each other on-set, Scott and Adam called it a “crush situation.” Hmmm, interesting! The pair is indeed adorable together onscreen and off, as evidenced by our chat with them about forming that oh-so-special on-screen chemistry. “I think the dance kind of opens it up and makes it easer to have that chemistry,” said Ryan. “With dance, there’s no personal space.”
“You get close really fast,” Kathryn said about learning to movie together. “And you have awkward moments really fast.”
Nothing like a little awkwardness to bring out the romance!
