Why is this happening? The movie that made me fall in love with Patrick Swayze and dance freaky on every boy is getting remade.
Deadline has the scoop:
Lionsgate has set Kenny Ortega to direct Dirty Dancing, the remake of the 1987 Emile Ardolino-helmed film about a pampered young girl who summers with her upscale family at an establishment in the Catskills and falls in love with the resident dance instructor. It brings Ortega full circle, since he choreographed and came up with the grinding "dirty dancing" that made the original sleeper hit one of the most profitable independent films ever made to that point.I know Kenny can do this, but he could also do something new. I don't want another version of DD. Just leave it alone. Let's try something new, for once.
