Jeffrey Hornaday To Direct High School Musical 4
Jeffrey Hornaday will helm High School Musical East Meets West, the fourth movie in the franchise (he’s replacing Kenny Ortega, who directed the first three).
Said Hornaday, “I’m excited to be part of a franchise that, thematically, encourages kids to believe in themselves. Like the first three movies, my goal is to keep the art form of the traditional musical alive, yet bring a contemporary emotional response to the story and its characters through song and dance.”
Hornaday choroeographed for Flashdance and A Chorus Line and directed Madonna and Backstreet Boys world concert tours.
In High School Musical 4, East meets West in a classic love triangle set against the cross-town school rivalry between the East High Wildcats and West High Knights.
