‘DIRTY DANCING’ GETS A REMAKE

Lionsgate has just announced that it will remake the 1987 classic film Dirty Dancing, which starred Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey.

Kenny Ortega, who choreographed the original film, will direct the remake. The remake will also incorporate classic songs from the 1960s and hits from the original film.

“The opportunity to direct Dirty Dancing is like returning home for me,” Ortega said in a press release. “Growing up in the ’60s on the dance floor helped define me as a person and as an artist. …Patrick Swayze set the bar for men dancing in the movies as Gene Kelly and Fred Astaire did before him. I believe everywhere you look there is evidence that the talent is out there and I can’t wait to begin the process of discovering the next breakout triple-threats.”

No release date was announced.
