SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE's Kherington Payne Cast in New FAME Movie

They are on Dancing with the Stars (Lacey Schwimmer) and on stage in New York (Neil Haskell), but now a So You Think You Can Dance star is hitting the big screen!

Kherington Payne, who made it to the Top 10 of this past season of SYTYCD, has been cast in the remake of Fame. She will play a ballerina named Alice in the film. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the films will also include Kristy Flores, Paul Iacono, Paul McGill (A Chorus Line), Naturi Naughton, Kay Panabaker, Collins Pennie, Walter Perez and Anna Maria Perez.

Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles star Thomas Dekker is in talks to play Marco, a singer, and Debbie Allen, who played Lydia in the original Alan Parker film, may have a cameo in the remake. The adult roles have yet to be cast.

Choreographer Kevin Tancharoen will direct the remake of "Fame," which was penned by Allison Burnett and Aline Brosh McKenna. Lakeshore Entertainment's Gary Lucchesi and Tom Rosenberg are producing with Mark Canton.

The film will "track the failures and fortunes of super-ambitious young performers and their teachers as they navigate a school year at the prestigious High School for the Performing Arts in New York."

Can't wait!
