Who is Duane Adler?

Duane Adler is a Hollywood screenwriter, director, and producer most known for his work on dance and music-driven fare, particularly Save the Last Dance and Step Up, and the upcoming release "Cobu," starring Derek Hough and Korean superstar BoA, which Adler wrote and directed. The success of Save the Last Dance and the Step Up franchise have put Adler in a unique category – as author of two of history’s top-grossing dance movies, and of the two of the top highest-grossing teen romances.

His other screenwriting credits include VH1’s telefilm The Way She Moves, Weinstein Co’s Make It Happen, Skydance's "Northern Lights," and Fox Atomic’s Venice Beach.

Adler is president of Hungry Yak Productions and partner in Connect Entertainment.
