During an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Work It star Jordan Fisher said, “I love to dance and I’ve been dancing for a very long time. To be part of a new kind of culturally defining dance film that’s super, super diverse, that is very character-driven in the way that the arcs of the story and how they [are] all shaped and take place is that it’s really about people, it’s not necessarily about dance, even though that’s kind of vehicle that you are riding in that takes you from point A to point Z.”
While Sabrina Carpenter said that she never expected that she would do a fun dance film in her life and Work It seemed surreal for her. She said, “It even felt like from the table read I didn’t really know what I was getting myself into until we were on set and we were filming. We were doing these numbers and everything just looked so great, and it was so fun and effortless.”
