Although the 2004 sequel Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights underperformed, Lionsgate films thinks audiences are ready to have the time of their lives once again and have given the green light to a remake of the 1987 classic Dirty Dancing.
High School Musical director Kenny Ortega, who choreographed the original Dirty‘s steamy, groin-grinding dance sequences, is on board to direct the reboot, and says, “The opportunity to direct Dirty Dancing is like returning home for me. Growing up in the ’60s on the dance floor helped define me as a person and as an artist.”
Jennifer Grey, the O.G. Baby Houseman, proved she still has the moves on Dancing With the Stars, so hopefully there’s a role for her in the new flick.
Who do YOU think should play Baby, Johnny, and Penny?
