According to Screen Daily Warner Bros have aquired the distribution rights in the UK for Diversity: Rise which will tell the story of the winners of Britain’s Got Talent in 2009.

Diversity: Rise will shoot in April 2013 and star and include choreography by the dance group’s leader Ashley Banjo.

Diversity: Rise will be written by Tom Edge of E4’s The Midnight Beast and directed by Euros Lyn, director of BBC’s Doctor Who and Sherlock. The producer will be David Livingstone

“Diversity is the biggest street dance group in the world in terms of ticket sales,” said David Livingstone. “This is a sensational story. Of course, we have high expectations for the film’s success in the UK, but judging on the global success of the likes of Step Up there is a broader market out there for entertaining dance films.”

Diversity won Britain’s Got Talent in 2009 and later went on to star in the Street Dance 3D movie as a cameo appearance. Later on Ashley Banjo was recruited as a judge for Got to Dance on Sky One and the group released Diversity: Dance Fitness Fusion on DVD.

Ashley Banjo also broke off during Got to Dance to film a spin off Ashley Banjo’s Secret Street Crew ahead of their last Diversity: Digitized arena tour.
