Former So You Think You Can Dance contestant Neil Haskell has just finished filming a new movie for MTV. It will air on the music channel at the end of August.

"It's a musical movie produced by the same people as High School Musical," Haskell said in a radio interview with Kiss 98.5/Buffalo.

In The American Mall, Haskell plays a janitor who, of course, is also in a rock band. Their instruments get stolen, he and his friends meet some girls at the mall, and hijinks - along with  choreographed dance numbers - ensue.

Haskell described the film as "Mallrats with dance." It also stars Autumn Reeser, a favorite of Reality TV Scoop editors following her role on The OC.

Haskell says that he hasn't exactly stayed in touch with the dancer who beat him last year, Sabra Johnson.

"I haven't talked to her too much. I'm still a little jealous about the money," he joked.
