George Sampson is to get his dancing shoes back on for StreetDance 2 3D.
The former Britain's Got Talent winner is to reprise his role as cheeky chappie Eddie, while Flawless will return as dance crew The Surge in the sequel.
"I'm very excited about working on StreetDance 2 3D, the film is going to be totally amazing. I'm looking forward to playing Eddie again especially as I have more of a central role - I'll be showcasing some spectacular moves," he said.
Filming will begin on June 6, with locations around Europe including London, Paris, Rome and Berlin.
"I also can't wait to be filming all over Europe in some incredible locations," George added.
Pro dancers Falk Hentschel and Sofia Boutella will take the lead roles of street dancer Ash and salsa dancer Eva.
StreetDance 2 3D, to be directed by the same filmmakers as the original, Max & Dania, and co-funded with British Film Institute and BBC Films, is set for release in 2012.
